Origin and Mission of The Brooklyn Brigade
The Brooklyn Brigade is a collection of PASSIONATE, VOCAL, and PROUD fans of the Brooklyn Nets who have come together to form an independent supporters group for our favorite NBA team.
Our goal is a simple one: We aim to give the Nets a home court advantage by contributing to a positive and supportive environment for our players by cheering, chanting, and getting the crowd going all game long ... while having a great time along the way.
The Brooklyn Brigade welcomes all Nets fans of good will, positive spirit, and loud voice -- regardless of race, age, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. We are a diverse group and we value our diversity. Some of us are long-time die-hards from the New Jersey days (or even earlier). Others are more recent fans who adopted the Nets as their own when the team moved to Brooklyn.
What unites us is our unwavering and uncompromising support for the Brooklyn Nets ... win or lose.
The Brooklyn Brigade was born in November 2012 after a brand-new Nets fan and proud Brooklyn native -- inspired by what he had read about the Loud & Proud section of the Prudential Center -- sought to re-create that passion and energy at Barclays Center by giving away 20 tickets to an upcoming Nets game to then-strangers via NetsDaily.com. What was originally intended to be a one-time experiment quickly snowballed and, due to the invaluable contribution of time and effort from many people, has evolved into the still-expanding group of fun-loving, hoarse-voiced, and Nets-obsessed men and women who fill the ranks of today's Brooklyn Brigade.
