Black Friday 2018 is finally here. While many people are out trying to find the best deals in brick-and-mortar stores, there are many sports fans sitting on their couches in front of their big-screen televisions watching the various games on today — from college basketball and football to NBA and NHL games. There’s even a special pay-per-view golf showdown today between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
For those that enjoy watching professional sporting events live in person at the various arenas and stadiums around the country, there are some great Black Friday sales out there — especially if you or someone you know loves one or more of the eight major teams located in New York metropolitan area.
Here’s a handy guide to some of the Black Friday deals being offered by the Knicks, Nets, Jets, Giants, Rangers, Islanders, Mets, and Yankees:
NEW YORK KNICKS
The NBA team has not done well in recent years, but that doesn’t stop the diehard fans from attending games. The Knicks are offering up to 20 percent off of home games at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden when using the code “FRIDAY” when purchasing tickets on Ticketmaster until Monday, November 26. There are 33 basketball games to choose from — from tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans until the Wednesday, April 10, game against the Detroit Pistons.
The basketball team is skipping Black Friday and going straight to Cyber Monday — but you can start taking advantage of the offer right now. The Nets are giving away a limited-edition New Era hat with specially-priced tickets purchased to one of the team’s 12 City Edition games between Friday, November 30, and Monday, April 1, against teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, crosstown rivals the New York Knicks, and the Charlotte Hornets. The offer is limited to the first 500 purchases on Fevo between now and Monday, November 26, and there is only one cap allowed per household.
NEW YORK JETS
Last in the NFL’s AFC East division, the Jets are still trying their hardest. For Black Friday, Gang Green is offering up to 30 percent off of tickets to two of their December games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. For the Saturday, December 15, game against the Houston Texans, enter code “BF1” on Ticketmaster and not only receive the discount but also a postgame field experience. For the Green Bay Packers matchup on Sunday, December 23, enter code “BF2” on Ticketmaster.
NEW YORK GIANTS
The Giants may be in last place in the NFC East, but the football team doesn’t seem to be losing any fans as there are three Giants home games left at East Rutherford, New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium and the Inquisitr could not find any Black Friday ticket deals for the team. However, if you are looking to buy Big Blue merchandise, on the official New York Giants Shop website, shoppers can save 25 percent off of all orders or 30 percent off of orders over $30 by using the code “COVER” until midnight.
NEW YORK RANGERS
The NHL team that’s currently in second place in the Metropolitan Division is offering up to 20 percent off of tickets to their games at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden. There are 29 Rangers games to choose from between Saturday, November 24, and Friday, April 5. The Broadway Blueshirts will be playing against teams such as the Washington Capitals, Winnipeg Jets, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, and New Jersey Devils. To take advantage of the sale — which ends on Monday, November 26 — just enter the code “FRIDAY” when purchasing tickets on Ticketmaster.
