Nationwide Arena History

Originally opened in 2000, Nationwide Arena has become one of the major draws in Columbus for a while now, and that's not something that's likely to change any time in the near future as it continues to bring some of the best hockey players in the world to the ice on a regular basis. Columbus is a big-time hockey city and Nationwide Arena was named by ESPN the Magazine as the second best fan experience in a venue in all of professional sports, and it was rated as the best arena in the NHL by Ultimate Sports Road Trip just to give it an extra feather in its cap. The 700,000 square foot venue can hold over 18,000 fans for hockey, over 19,000 for basketball games, over 17,000 for arena football, and 21,000 for concerts, giving it the scope to match the talent down on the field, court or ice for all the top match-ups on the sports calendar from year to year.


Nationwide Arena Events

As the home of the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League, you can count on seeing some top-tier pro hockey on a regular basis, making Nationwide Arena one of the best places in Columbus for a major spectator sport – which is saying something. The arena is perhaps best known in sports as a hockey arena but it has also hosted several notable UFC fights, Professional Bull Riding's Built Ford Tough Series, NCAA Basketball Tournament games, and much more.

It's not only about the sports, however, as prominent acts like Madonna, Neil Young, R.E.M., Lady Gaga, John Fogerty, and many others have all played at Nationwide, giving you plenty of reasons to keep your eye on the event calendar for more than just sensational ice hockey match-ups.. Other big events that have been held at Nationwide Arena include a Barack Obama campaign rally that featured Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen, the 2007 National Catholic Youth Conference, the 2012 National Youth Conference, and much more, showing that this is the type of venue that does a little bit of everything from year to year.


Nationwide Arena Trivia

Did you know that Nationwide Arena even hosts an Arnold Schwarzenegger bodybuilding event?

The Governator, as he's been lovingly called since his time as the governor of California, comes to Columbus yearly to host the Arnold Classic, which celebrates fitness and bodybuilding and routinely draws in fans by the thousands to be a part of the action.


Nationwide Arena Fan Experience

There's nothing like being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush off the potato chips and get ready to see a game you won't soon forget. The NHL has plenty of great games on the schedule each and every season, from plenty of top-tier regular season battles to playoff clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. But even though hockey is the main draw for Nationwide, you're way, way off if you think that it's only about hockey here, as it has a steady stream of amazing concerts, speaking engagements and conventions that make it one of the best places in the area to find a bit of live entertainment.
