• Construction of a new premium seating offering is underway at the Bridgestone Arena, reports the Nashville Post. The 501 Club will offer 80- 90 seats available for annual purchase for $15,000- $17,000 each. Previously, suite holders had to lease the entire suite for the year. Other improvements at the arena include a $6 million HVAC upgrade of chilling and dehumidifying systems, because these conditions are closely regulated for hockey games.
