Blue Jackets Game Experience rated among NHL’s Best

The game day experience of fans attending Columbus Blue Jackets games at home at Nationwide Arena in the Arena District is among the best in the National Hockey League according to a survey conducted during the 2015-16 season.

In the survey, nearly 6,000 Blue Jackets’ single game ticket buyers were polled to evaluate all aspects of their game day experience from arrival to departure. The Blue Jackets were among the top echelon of NHL clubs in all eight categories reviewed including overall game day satisfaction. Other categories included in the survey were: game day staff, food & beverage, venue technology, safety & security, auxiliary experience and arrival and departure experience.

“As an organization, we are committed to and take great pride in providing our guests with a world-class experience every time they come to a Blue Jackets game at Nationwide Arena,” said club President Mike Priest. “Succeeding in that effort isn’t possible without the hard work and contributions of every single person that works our games and the support of great partners like Columbus Arena Management, Delaware North, Contemporary Services Corporation, Standard Parking and Jani-King, who share that commitment with us. Our fans are our top priority. We truly appreciate their feedback and we’ll continue to work to enhance their game day experience.”

One of the other reasons that fans could love coming to Blue Jacket’s Home Games is that the Arena District itself makes for an incredible fan experience. R Bar has been voted one of the best hockey bars in Columbus and always have fun game day specials. They also offer the longest happy hour in the Arena District lasting from 2-8pm. Other Columbus downtown bars and restaurants also fill up with fans on games days!
