Belmont arena construction

A look at the latest from the construction site of the Islanders' future arena at Belmont Park. The Islanders’ 17,113-seat hockey arena is scheduled to open October 2021. It is the centerpiece of a $1.3-billion sports-and-entertainment development on the 43-acre parcel of state land adjacent to the Belmont racetrack. The new arena ends the Islanders’ decades-long search for a new home and brings the team back to Long Island full-time, which the team’s ownership has been seeking almost since the day the franchise departed Nassau Coliseum in 2015 for Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
