Nashville Predators management long has believed that if it can get someone into Bridgestone Arena for a hockey game that person will want to return for another.
Now franchise officials have decided to test that theory in the offseason.
In an effort to get as many people as possible to attend Saturday’s ‘Open House’ (a.k.a. ticket sale) the Predators announced Monday that 100 tickets at $15 apiece will be available to each of this season’s 41 home games. Those tickets will be available beginning noon Saturday at Bridgestone Arena only.
Single-game tickets (at their regular price) for 2014-15 home games go on sale to the general public on Sunday.
The Open House begins 10 a.m. and includes a used equipment sale, a free public skate and a scrimmage between participants in this week’s prospects conditioning camp. Those in attendance also may scout seats and purchase season ticket packages for the coming season.
