Road To Reopening: Barclays Center, Madison Square Garden Set To Welcome Back Spectators

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York takes another step on the road to reopening Thursday.

Nearly a year after the lockdown began, stadiums and arenas with a capacity of 10,000 people or more can welcome back spectators.

As CBS2’s John Dias reported, there will be plenty of restrictions in place.

The Barclays Center plans to open with a few hundred fans, working its way up to 10% capacity. It will also open two hours early to get fans safely inside.

The Brooklyn Nets take on the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.
