Nashville Predators News and Notes

Predators To Host Stadium Series Game at Nissan Stadium in 2022 | On the Forecheck

Ahem... sorry... just a little excited for this.

Fans here have been DREAMING for an outdoor game in Nashville for the better part of the past decade, and let’s be honest, it was only a matter of time. The city has a phenomenal track record of knocking it out of the park when it comes to hosting big events like this. The game itself is going to be a scene. But I’m equally as pumped to see what the city does during the week leading up to this.

This is going to be fun, folks.
