Tampa Bay, it’s finally here! The 2021-22 Tampa Bay Lightning home opener at Amalie Arena (Tuesday, October 12th). There’s a bunch of things you’ll want to know before you go see our Back2Back Champions face-off versus the Pittsburgh Penguins in the home opener!

The Tampa Bay Lightning start their campaign for a three-peat. Believe it or not, the Bolts won two Stanley Cups in less than a year. The first one coming on September 28, 2020 in the NHL Bubble. The second one coming just months later, this one at home at Amalie Arena in front of the Lightning faithful and their families. Two very different celebrations for two very different seasons unlike the NHL had ever seen before. Now the NHL goes back to the original season and playoff format going into the 2021-2022 season. The Lightning will play in their first-ever outdoor game in Nashville at the end of February.

So can the Bolts do it again? Only time will tell.

  • Allow Extra Time To Get To Amalie Arena

    There have been changes to downtown Tampa traffic around Amalie Arena. Channelside Drive will be CLOSED in front of the arena from Jefferson Street to S. Meridian Avenue. Guests coming from the west on Channelside Dr. will be directed north on Jefferson Ave. and will be able to turn east on Cumberland to Meridian. Guests coming from the east can take Cumberland Ave. to Morgan St. or Franklin St. and can go south to get to Amalie Arena. Find out more here.

  • New Bag Policy At Amalie Arena

    • ALL bags larger than a small clutch must be x-rayed prior to entry into the arena.
    • Small clutches can be visually inspected and do not need to be x-rayed.
    • Bags must be 12x12x12 or smaller.
    • A bag lane will be located at gates A, B, Premium, North ADA, VIP and the Suite Entrance.
    • Guests with no bags or small clutches will be permitted to go through any of the search points.
    • Amalie Arena highly encourages guests to carry a small clutch instead of bringing a bag, purse or fanny pack.
    • GATE C IS OPEN TOO!  If your seat location is on the East side of Amalie Arena and you would like a more expedited entry for each home game, please enter through Gate C at the corner of Water St. and Channelside Dr.
  • NHL Faceoff FREE Concert featuring All Time Low

    It wouldn’t be a party without a concert! All Time Low will be part of the Home Opener festivities. See them live from 5:30 – 6:10PM at the Lost Pearl at the Sail Pavilion/Tampa Convention Center Docks.

     

  • Banner Raising, Freebies, And Faceoff

    It will be a sight to behold when they raise the 2020-21 Stanley Cup Champions banner to the rafters of Amalie Arena. They will also be giving away 20,000 Mini Replica Banners presented by Amalie Motor Oil. The puck drops at 7:30PM on the new season as our Bolts face-off versus the Pittsburgh Penguins.

  • No Tickets, No Problem!

    Don’t have tickets to the game? No worries! Join the party for a FREE opening night watch party on Ford Thunder Alley. Watch the game on LED screens, enjoy swag and Lightning partner activation, check out ESPN broadcasting live and more. The more Bolts fans, the merrier!!

  • When The Lightning Win, You Win!

    A victory for the Bolts means a freebie or discount for you! When the Lightning win at home, open your Chick-fil-A app about 30 minutes after the final buzzer. You’ll have until midnight to claim a free chicken sandwich or biscuit. You then use your mobile app to get the freebie the next day at most Tampa area Chick-fil-A locations. FYI: If you have location services turned off, you may not get the deal because it’s exclusive to Tampa Bay fans. Also there are times when the freebie doesn’t pop up in those first 30 minutes. If they forget to post the freebie, they usually have it in there the next morning.

    Who doesn’t want a half-priced pizza? Papa John’s help celebrate a Lightning win – home or away. The day after a win, use the promo code BOLTSW in their app or on their website to get the deal.

    These are just some of the offers. Thanks to our sister station Q105 and Geno for finding out all the Bolts freebies!
