NHL Centennial Fan Arena Coming to Tampa


Hockey season is in full swing in Hockey Bay USA, and local fans have a lot to look forward to this season. The Tampa Bay Lightning are arguably one of the NHL’s best teams, the Amalie Arena awaits the 2018 NHL All-Star game at the end of January, and now fans can enjoy the history of the NHL when the NHL Centennial Fan Arena Tour comes to Tampa.

An experience that only comes around every 100 years

The NHL Centennial Fan Arena Tour is a celebration of the National Hockey League’s 100 years of existence. It gives fans the unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the NHL’s rich history by walking through the NHL Mobile Museum and getting up close to the oldest and most revered trophy in all professional sports, the Stanley Cup. Never-before-seen VR experience allows fans from across North America to compete against each other in a Zamboni race to resurface the ice.

Lightning Made Community Hockey will be running clinics and games on the pop up ball hockey rink each day teaching the fundamentals of hockey and running mini tournaments.

The NHL Centennial Fan Arena Tour will take place December 7-9 at Amalie Arena (401 Channelside Dr). Events will take place in the Silver Lot, right next to Ford Thunder Alley.
