New York Islanders– enjoy elite ice hockey live!
One of three professional ice hockey teams based in New York, the New York Islanders play their home games in Brooklyn and their main fan base comes from Long Island. Initially only forming to compete against a team from the rival World Hockey Association (WHA) for the Nassau Coliseum, the Islanders went on to become a very successful and competitive team.

Quick rise to success
Within two years of forming, the New York Islanders started to find success almost instantly, after securing spots in the playoffs early on in the season. This success continued and in 1980, the Islanders made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup final up against the Philadelphia Flyers. A challenging match ended when they got through the best-of-seven series games 4-2 and won their first ever Stanley Cup. Incredibly, their success did not stop here and the Islanders went on to win another three consecutive Stanley Cups against the Vancouver Canucks, the Edmonton Oilers and the old franchise Minnesota North Stars, before they moved to Dallas. Early success brought the team to fame, however after a number of refused attempts to rebuild their stadium, issues with management and money and low attendance rates, the team went through a low phase, not winning a playoff for many years. Watch the team as they come back and regain success. Buy your New York Islanders tickets at StubHub and get ready to see this team showcase their top players on the ice.
A community minded team
Not only do the New York Islanders play competitive ice hockey and put on a consistent show for their fans, they also make a difference to people off the ice. They deeply care for their community and this is shown through community programmes, fundraisers, events and the Islander Children Foundation. All these accomplishments are the result of a dedicated group of individuals closely associated with the club, as well as sponsors and loyal fans. One of their major initiatives which has proven to be nothing but a success is the Islanders Children Foundation, which has raised over $10 million for children on Long Island and across the globe. To watch a great game of sport and support a team that is directly involved with its community, go and see the Islanders live.
