Nashville, Tenn. (Dec. 13, 2017) ― In conjunction with the official grand opening of its Americas headquarters, Bridgestone Americas, Inc. and the Nashville Predators announced Wednesday an additional five-year extension of the naming rights agreement for Bridgestone Arena, home of the Nashville Predators. First signed in March of 2010, the extended terms will ensure Nashville's premier downtown arena continues to bear the Bridgestone brand through 2025.
"Bridgestone is a proud supporter of the Nashville Predators, and it continues to be a great source of pride for our company and our teammates to have the arena bear our name," said Bridgestone Americas President and CEO Gordon Knapp. "Now that our new headquarters building is located across the street from the arena, there's even more of a connection to our city and pro hockey team. Like the rest of the world, we've witnessed the success of both the arena and the Preds, and we are excited to continue our partnership with a local landmark that has helped transform downtown Nashville into one of the top destinations in the country. We look forward to keeping the Bridgestone brand front and center with so many passionate fans of sport, music and the countless other world-class entertainment events hosted by this celebrated venue."
