Silent Auction area
At every Predators home game, fans have the opportunity to bid on autographed Predators memorabilia and opposing team memorabilia.
The Silent Auction booth is located on the main concourse just outside the Predators Pro Shop. Bidding starts when the Bridgestone Arena doors open and closes at the drop of the puck to start the third period.
The names of those with winning bids are put on the center hung scoreboard's matrix board in the third period of that night's game.
Birthday and Special Announcement Matrix Messages
For a $50 donation to the Predators Foundation, fans can put a greeting on the center hung scoreboard's matrix board during the game. These birthday wishes, happy anniversaries, and engagement announcements are run once a game during a timeout in game action.
If you would like for your special announcement to run on the matrix during a game, contact the Community Relations department at 615-770-2343 at least 72 hours prior to that game.
For a $100 donation to the Predators Foundation, fans may ride the Predators Zamboni during a Predators game, based on availability. Please call 615-770-2331 at least one week prior to the requested game.
For a $100 donation to the Predators Foundation, fans may sit in the penalty box during pregame warm-ups, based on availability. Please call 615-770-2331 at least 48 hours prior to the requested game.
