The Nets (and Islanders) have started selling what’s being called “Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment Experiences,” high-priced premium game packages that include courtside seats, game day access to players and a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Barclays Center.

The Experiences will be available at 10 Nets games (and 10 Islander games as well). The Nets games will be against the NBA’s top teams and the Knicks. The Nets-Bulls game on Halloween Night, October 31, will be the first.

According to a press release, fans who sign up for the Experience will have start-to-finish premium access...

Upon arriving at Barclays Center, fans will drive into the building through the venue's renowned truck elevator to a private, underground parking area, the same that's used for Nets and Islanders players. They will be greeted by a dedicated concierge, who will escort them throughout the evening. A private dressing room will be provided for use throughout the night which will come equipped with a swag bag stuffed with personalized gear.

On the basketball side, fans will have a private pre-game shootaround on the Nets' practice court, and the younger fans will high five the players as they run out onto the court. For the game, fans will receive the complete VIP experience by watching the Nets from some of the most coveted seats in professional sports, courtside seats.

For a behind-the-scenes look into what goes into producing a live sporting event, fans will be invited to tour Barclays Center's control room, sit with the radio broadcast teams, and will receive credentials to check out the post-game press conference. After the game, fans will have their photo taken at Nets center court.

The program is being run by Quint Events along with Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment, Mikhail Prokhorov’s parent company for the Nets, Barclays Center, Nassau Coliseum and Islander business operations.

The Nets and Islander packages are the second set of experiences being promoted. The first, centered around a Barbra Streisand concert, took place last month.

How much? Hard to tell from the press release, but the Streisand Experience went for $6,990. Fans interested in the packages are being asked to fill out a form so they can be contacted with the details.
