    Do Children Need Their Own Ticket? Do Kids Get In Free?

    There's a general policy on tickets for kids (see below) but family shows geared specifically toward children may have a different age policy. Here's the general policy:

    For Sporting Events & "Most Concerts": Kids 2 years of age and younger do not require a ticket to be admitted into Barclays Center. But they must sit on adult’s lap and may not occupy a seat.

    Children age 3 and above need their own ticket to enter the arena and must occupy their ticketed seat only.

    The policy says, "Children up to 34” inches in height may enter Barclays Center free of charge but must share a seat with an accompanying ticketed adult."
