Code of Conduct

Barclays Center is committed to creating a safe, comfortable and enjoyable entertainment experience. Guests have a right to expect an environment where:

  • Guests will be treated in a consistent, professional and courteous manner by all venue personnel.
  • Guests will enjoy every event free from disruptive behavior, including foul or abusive language or obscene gestures.
  • Guests will consume alcoholic beverages in a responsible manner. Intervention with an impaired, intoxicated or underage guest will be handled in a prompt and safe manner.
  • Guests will sit only in their ticketed seats and show their tickets when requested.
  • Guests who engage in fighting, throwing objects or attempting to enter the court/stage will be immediately ejected from the venue.
  • Guests will not be permitted to smoke in the arena at any time (electronic cigarettes and vape pens are included in this prohibition). The immediate area around the arena is also a non-smoking campus.
  • Guests will comply with requests from venue staff regarding facility operations and emergency response procedures.
  • Guests will be required to wear a shirt and shoes at all times for their own safety. Barclays Center management reserves the right to deny entry to guests wearing clothing items or signs displaying offensive text and/or images.
  • Guests will also be responsible for their own good time by reporting inappropriate behavior.
  • Guests will comply with all Barclays Center COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

The arena staff has been trained to intervene where necessary to help ensure that the above expectations are met, and guests are encouraged to report any inappropriate behavior to the nearest usher, security guard, guest services staff member or anonymously through our texting system. Guests who choose not to adhere to these provisions will be subject to penalty including, but not limited to, ejection without refund, revocation of season tickets, and/or prevention from attending future games and events. They may also be in violation of city ordinances resulting in possible arrest and prosecution.

Thank you for adhering to the provisions of the Barclays Center Guest Code of Conduct.

Please enjoy the event!
