Arena Info  

One of the most beautiful and unique sports and entertainment venues in the world, Nationwide Arena opened its doors in September, 2000 with the nation's only two-night performance of the sold-out "Soul to Soul" tour featuring Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

Nationwide Arena is the home of the National Hockey League's Columbus Blue Jackets and a wide variety of world-class entertainment events.

Located on the corner of Nationwide Boulevard and Front Street in downtown Columbus, the facility raises the bar of excellence for sports and entertainment facilities. The following unique features separate Nationwide Arena from its peers:

  • Two 80-foot towers anchoring the western interior of the seating bowl that house party suites
  • A 70-foot, glass-enclosed atrium
  • Open lobbies and concourses that allow fans a great view of the ice as soon as they walk through the door
  • Elegant design featuring terrazzo floors
  • Brick pillars and marble details
  • A 135-foot light tower at the southeast corner

The IceHaus Nationwide Arena holds the distinction as the first building in the National Hockey League to have the team's practice facility, Ohio Health Ice Haus, attached to the arena where the team plays its games. The OhioHealth Ice Haus is open to the public as well.

Nationwide Arena is the centerpiece of the Arena District, a trendy section of downtown development with a unique mixture of business, entertainment and residential space that attracts a broad spectrum of tenants and visitors from across the country and North America.

Whatever the occasion, Nationwide Arena offers premier entertainment inside and out.
