The New York Islanders could be return to the newly re-renovated Nassau Coliseum in the near future, according to The Newsday. The Islanders have played at the Barclays Center for the past three-years.

“Over the last two months, I have met with Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment (BSE), Islanders owners, I’ve met with the county and the state,” Long Island Association president Kevin Law told Newsday. “What I just learned very recently is that BSE will be offering a plan to the Islanders to move them back to the Coliseum.”

The BSE is thr operater of both arenas. Law insists the Nassau Coliseum would be willing to make additional adjustments if the Islanders have any concerns of moving back. 

Even last year, it was speculated that the Islanders would leave their lease early. They are in Year 3 of a 25-year lease.

They could opt-out of their lease at the end of this season.

Prior to moving to the then-newly built Barclays Center, the Islanders played 36 seasons at the Nassau Coloseum. It began in 1972 before leaving in 2015 to move to Brooklyn, NY.
