Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Americas Extend Naming Rights Agreement

Arena will bear the Bridgestone brand name through 2019

NASHVILLE, TENN. (Dec. 15, 2011) - The Nashville Predators and Bridgestone Americas, Inc. are proud to announce a five-year extension for the naming rights for Bridgestone Arena, home of the Nashville Predators. Signed in March of 2010, the initial term of the agreement was five years, and with this extension, signed just two years into the first five-year deal, Bridgestone Americas will have the Bridgestone brand name on Nashville's downtown arena through 2019.

Since Bridgestone Americas lent the brand name to Nashville's downtown arena two years ago, the venue has enjoyed its most successful years to date. Bridgestone Arena, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this month, was nominated in November for its fifth consecutive Pollstar Venue of the Year Award - with the two highest Pollstar year-end rankings ever occurring in 2010 and 2011. It is also the second busiest venue in the country according to Venues Today.
