Bridgestone Arena, is home to multiple professional sports teams in Tennessee.
Nashville is a city of more than 600,000 people, and its downtown area is home to several professional sports teams. The most popular one is the Nashville Predators hockey team. The arena where they play their games has been around since 1998 but was originally known as Nashville Arena and Sommet Center before being renamed Bridgestone Arena after a long partnership with Bridgestone Corporation.
Bridgestone Arena, formerly known as Nashville Arena, Sommet Center, and Nashville Arena, is a multi-purpose venue in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
The building is named after the Bridgestone tire company, which was founded by brothers Minoru, Hiroshi and Shojiro Ishibashi. When the team moved from General Motors Coliseum, they were known as the Predators and played in a smaller arena located on Broadway. In 2005, when the NHL announced plans for their new rink across town, Bridgestone Arena became home to both teams: The Predators moved into their new venue while other parts of downtown Nashville gained new buildings such as McFerrin Plaza Tower 1 & 2 (originally known as Music City Center) and First Tennessee Park (formerly LP Field).
The arena’s capacity is 18,000+ seats which includes 19 luxury suites with seating areas available at all levels throughout each level. There are also two club lounges behind one goal along with another club lounge above center ice where fans can watch TV replays or listen to music while waiting for their favorite player’s next shift
