Predators game postponed as broken water main floods Bridgestone Arena (Video)

Nashville Predators team store at Bridgestone Arena flooded, 11/25/2022
Friday afternoon's Nashville Predators game against the visiting Colorado Avalanche was postponed due to a broken water main causing flooding inside sections of Bridgestone Arena.

According to WSMV, the water main break occurred just after 5AM on Friday morning, while the Predators game was scheduled to be played at 1PM in the afternoon. It was clear that the water damage would not be cleaned up anytime soon, so Saturday's Predators game against Columbus has been postponed as well. Based on the attached video footage, large portions of the lower section of the arena, including the team store, were covered by at least an inch of water:

This is not the first time we have seen water main break cause flooding inside sports arenas, as basketball courts inside Pauley Pavilion at UCLA were flooded back in 2014.

Bridgestone Arena was also scheduled to hold the Music City Hockey Classic college game between Northeastern University and the University of Western Michigan on Friday evening at 6:30PM. That game was moved to the Ford Ice Center in Bellevue.

Tickets to the postponed Predators games will be honored at Bridgestone Arena for the rescheduled games. As of this writing, the games have not yet been rescheduled.
