Nets selling Brooklyn tickets

NEW YORK -- The New Jersey Nets have started selling their premium season tickets for their inaugural NBA season at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in 2012-13.

Nets chief executive officer Brett Yormark said the team has offered current season-ticket holders the opportunity to buy its top ticket package, which is being called "All Access" season tickets. The offers were mailed recently.

The packages will cover 4,000 club and courtside seats in the area. Yormark said that all of the top-of-the-line All Access seats have been sold. He did not say how much they cost.

The remaining premium seats range in price from $99 to $1,500 per seat.

Season-ticket holders in these premium locations will get a pass, which will allow the holder to buy tickets before the general public to non-Nets events at the Barclays Center, and also get unlimited food at designated clubs and all fixed concession stands during games.

Other benefits with the pass include a private entrance, dedicated VIP speed lines, concierge service and early access into the arena.

"We always promised anyone that was buying in New Jersey would have the right to first buy Brooklyn," Yormark said, adding the general public would be offered the chance to buy remaining premium seating in June.

Prices for the All Access premium season tickets will remain flat during the three-year required commitment. Non-premium seats probably will go on sale in the fall, Yormark said.

The Nets also announced that 2,000 tickets will be priced at $15 and under for each game, and an allotment of tickets for all events at the Barclays Center will be made available to the community, which was committed to in the Community Benefits Agreement of 2005.

Fifty percent of all season tickets will be priced at $55 or less per game, and lower-level season tickets start at $65. There will be no personal seat licenses.

"Our No. 1 priority in pricing our tickets was to ensure that Nets games are accessible to everyone," Yormark said.

The Barclays Center will have more than 200 events annually, including concerts, boxing, professional tennis, college basketball and hockey, and family shows.
