Bridgestone Americas and the Nashville Predators have extended their naming-rights agreement for the downtown Bridgestone Arena.
The original five-year agreement was signed in March 2010 and included the option for an extension. That option was exercised, yielding the just-announced five-year extension. The new deal runs through 2019.
When sharing the news at a press conference, Predators CEO Jeff Cogen and Bridgestone Americas CEO Gary Garfield said they hope to bring the NHL’s All-Star Game to Nashville, possibly after the opening of the Music City Center.
