Nashville Predators agree to stay at Bridgestone Arena through 2049

The Nashville Predators have agreed a 30-year extension of their lease at Bridgestone Arena, which will keep the NHL team at the venue through 2049.

The deal makes the Predators, rather than taxpayers, financially responsible for all future capital improvements, subject to the approval of the Metro Nashville Sports Authority, which is expected to vote on the new lease next month.

The Predators now plan to invest around $350m (€313m) in renovations and maintenance to the arena over the next 20 years. In 2021, the organization intends to add around 1,200 seats to the upper level, as well as a new press box.
