Barclays Center is almost complete. The “Barclays Center” lettering was installed on Tuesday, which means that the outside of the arena at least is starting to look like what it will be on opening night. The inside of the arena is not quite complete yet, with the scoreboard at center court yet to be raised. The arena is expected to be finished less than a month from now in the first week of September. The first event at the arena will be on September 28th with a concert by Jay-Z (and possibly Mikhail Prokhorov). The first regular season basketball game will be on November 1st, when the Brooklyn Nets host the New York Knicks.
