For Predators Season-Ticket Citizens, the Year of the Fan is turning into the franchise of the fan.
Launched on Monday, the Loyal Legacy Program is the brand-new official tenure program for Nashville's STCs, a first of its kind for the franchise. It's a way to honor those fans who have made a significant commitment to cheer on the team, and the Preds want to return the favor.
Currently, there are five different tiers to the program - Rookie, 5-Year, 10-Year, 15-Year, and Day One, with the plan to expand tiers as the franchise celebrates additional anniversaries in the years to come.
There's no need to sign up for anything either - the Loyal Legacy Program is simply an additional benefit for being a Preds STC.
Season-Ticket Citizens will receive a new pin, special gift and in-game recognition when they reach a new tier, and to kick off the new endeavor, each and every STC will be honored this season.
"We're always trying to provide our Season-Ticket Citizens with the best value possible, and also reward the ones who have been with us for the longest time," Predators Manager of Guest Experience Zack Taylor said. "We'll have some in-game recognition, have their names on the ice, things like that, and we'll keep growing into other gifts that we'll add through the program as well."
So, when will your night to shine be held? Rookie STCs, or those who have joined from 2016 to 2019 will be honored on Nov. 16. Five-year STCs (2011-2015) will have their night on Nov. 25, 10-year STCs (2006-2010) on Jan. 7 and 15-Year STCs (2001-2005) on Feb. 16.
Finally, Day One STCs will be honored on March 24 with a few extra perks.
"The coolest part of a program like this is recognizing the tenure of the people who have been here since Day One," Taylor said. "To be able to recognize the people who helped start this franchise and were the first fans, the people that have been here since 1998, we're going to give them an extra piece to kind of brag and boast about. They were a part of the initial Predators organization, and they've been here ever since and have seen them grow and go through the ups and downs. We know they'll continue to support us no matter what happens in the future."
