Long Island Jets fans won’t be able to see their favorite team at Hofstra for a second straight year.
The Jets announced this week that due to Hofstra’s maintenance projects in advance of the presidential debate, that the August 21 practice will be moved to MetLife Stadium instead of the Hempstead campus.
“We have had a great relationship with Hofstra University for many years and we understand the circumstances,” the team said in a statement.
Despite the latest schedule change, the team insisted that it is “committed to remaining connected to our Long Island fans.”
Practice was canceled last year because of inclement weather.
Hofstra announced last October that it will host the second of three debates on October 16.
This will be the second debate held on Hofstra’s campus. In 2008, the university hosted the third debate between then Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain.
The Jets said details on the MetLIfe Stadium practice will be announced at a later date.
