In a press release, the Nets say "full season tickets for the 2013-14 Nets campaign at Barclays Center are on the verge of selling out" following the acquisition of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko.
Since the acquisitions were announced, say the Nets, the team has sold more than $3 million of new full season tickets bringing the Nets close to "their cap on season ticket sales for the upcoming season." A league source said the cap number is 13,000. Last season, the Nets had roughly 11,000 season ticket holders.
Group sales and individual tickets will go on sale in September.
“We continue to be a product in high demand, now more than ever,” said Brett Yormark. “I would encourage fans who are interested in season tickets to buy now and be part of what will be a memorable season.”
The team also announced a marketing campaign, "Hello Brooklyn. We’re In." The campaign features the four players in Brooklyn Nets jerseys and serves as an introduction for the players to their new borough. The four, with a combined 26 All-Star appearances, will be introduced Thursday at a Barclays Center press conference to be televised live by YES and ESPN.
