NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Predators have been scheduled to play 41 games this upcoming season, but for many fans the unofficial start of Smashville began as tickets went on sale Saturday at noon.
In addition to tickets going on sale, the Predators held an open house where fans could scout seats for the upcoming season, pick up real Predators gear at the used equipment sale and even check out some of the athletes during a development camp scrimmage.
Fans getting tickets Saturday got an early jump on those who want to buy their tickets online, which will be available for purchase on Sunday. Many were also able to enjoy fun and games as part of the event, as well.
Even people from out-of-state traveled to Nashville for the open house. Crysti Keefauver and her son made the trip from Alabama.
“My son plays hockey and so it’s just fun for him to come out as a family for a fun day to see what the future in hockey is for this town, especially because this is the closest NHL town we have to Huntsville,” Keefauver said.
The opening home game for the Predators has been set for October 9.
