Nashville Predators Tickets
Wisconsin businessman Craig Leipold and his creative group had a vision. In January 1997, they made a formal presentation before the National Hockey League to request an expansion of the franchise. The league officials then took to Nashville, Tenn., to tour the arena. Thousands of people gathered at the arena to meet and greet, thus forming an incredible fan base for the potential team. In the coming months, the league granted a conditional agreement to multiple large cities, including Nashville. The Nashville team would go on to begin playing as the Nashville Predators in 1998 as a member of the NHL’s Central Division. They boast a conference championship title and two division championships. After five seasons of game play, the team qualified to compete for the Stanley Cup. However, the team didn't make it to the finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs until 2017, when they lost to Pittsburgh.
