Game Time Atmosphere
If you have never been to a Predators game, I suggest you add it to your bucket list. I didn’t know what to expect the first time I went. Now the crowd at Bridgestone is the measuring stick to which all other hockey arenas should be measured.
The atmosphere is incredible. You feel like you are hanging out with 17,000 of your closest friends.
I attended the Predators/Golden Knights game in November. I was seated next to a Scottish gentleman who kept yelling “Go Preds” and “Come On Jarny” in his delightful accent. We began high-fiving after every Predator’s goal.
There is also one section of the arena that is just a bit special. I’m talking about Cell Block 303. Section 303 is the loudest section of the stadium and the one that originated some of the famous chants that take place at Bridgestone.
The chants that take place in the arena during games are one of the things that tie all of the fans together. There is nothing like yelling “YOU SUCK” and “IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT” at the opposing goalie when the Predators score.
There is a real family feeling at Bridgestone. I have only been in one other arena for a hockey game. It made me appreciate the vibe of Bridgestone Arena.
