TAMPA — With just over six weeks until their preseason opener, the Lightning on Thursday announced on-sale dates for 2021-22 single-game tickets.
Tickets for preseason and regular-season home games at Amalie Arena, as well as the Oct. 5 preseason game at Amway Center in Orlando, will go on sale to the general public on Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. at TampaBayLightning.com/Tickets.
Special single-game presales will be open to season ticket members Tuesday at 10 a.m. Other groups with access to the advanced presales include the Lightning Priority Access Club, Flex Plan holders, Chase credit card holders and members of the Lightning Insider email club.
The first preseason home game will be Sept. 30 against the Predators. The Lightning will kick off the regular season at home Oct. 12 against the Penguins, when they presumably will raise their 2020-21 Stanley Cup championship banner into the rafters.
After playing in a reconfigured Central Division this past season, Tampa Bay will return to the Atlantic Division in 2021-22. It will play each division opponent four times, other conference opponents three times and inter-conference teams twice.
The NHL All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 4-5 in Las Vegas. The Lightning will play their first outdoor game Feb. 26 against the Predators at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans.
