The Predators are one of the few NHL franchises offering in-person attendance this season.

The only other teams permitting reduced capacity events are the:

  • Arizona Coyotes
  • Dallas Stars
  • Florida Panthers
  • Tampa Bay Lightning
  • St. Louis Blues

With the safety of patrons in mind, the Predators have worked in conjunction with Bridgestone Arena to implement new Smashville Safe guidelines and have taken the Tennessee Venue Pledge.

Patrons can purchase tickets individually or in multiples at a variety of price tiers – subject to availability.

This season, two-, four- and six-person pods comprise seating throughout the arena. Additionally, the original ticket purchaser must present these non-transferrable tickets at the event.

Tickets for the Predators’ entire February home game schedule are currently available on Ticketmaster.

Six home games take place in February:

Nashville Predators SVP of Ticket Sales, Premium Sales & Youth Hockey Nat Harden said:

“Having provided the opportunity for each of our Season-Ticket Citizens to purchase tickets for this month’s home games through the Loyal Legion Ticket Lottery presented by Tennessee Lottery, we are now thrilled to extend this opportunity to single-game ticket buyers as well. After hosting our Season-Ticket Citizens during our recent homestand against the Blackhawks, the introduction of single-game purchasing opportunities is an exciting step toward the eventual return of the unrivaled Smashville crowds that we have come to know and love.”

The franchise will reevaluate policies and procedures based on the success of February’s events. Recommendations from the Board of Health, Mayor’s Office, NHL and Vanderbilt Health will also be taken into account.

Crowd size and seating pod size will fluctuate accordingly in subsequent months.
