New York Islanders Win Bid For New Arena At Belmont Park

The New York Islanders’ proposal for a new arena at Belmont Park has been selected by the state over the bid from New York City FC, according to Newsday’s Jim Baumbach.

This is a big win for the Islanders, who proposed their plan for an 18,000-seat arena that would host up to 200 events annually, as well as 435,000-square for retail, including a hotel with 200-to-250 rooms along with an “innovation center.”

The Islanders moved to the Barclay’s Center, their current home in Brooklyn, after the 2015 season.

This also will help the Isles in contract negotiations with John Tavares who has stated that he was waiting to know where the arena plans were before signing a long-term agreement.

Now, the Isles have some stability in regards to their future.
