New York Used Barclays Center To Help Lure 2014 Super Bowl

Barclays Center is scheduled to open in October 2012.  That's 13 months before Super Bowl XLVIII is played across the Hudson in the Meadowlands and New York State's economic development czar said yesterday the city has big plans for the Nets' new home that weekend. 

State economic development chief Peter Davidson told The Post that the under-construction Brooklyn arena will be added to the list of venues hosting Super Bowl-week gala events, including the Javits Center and the James A. Farley Post Office. The availability of a large venue for Super Bowl events was part of the package needed to lure the event. Madison Square Garden, whose owners fought the idea of a Jets Stadium on Manhattan's West Side, will not be included.
