“Hockey or Concerts at a great arena First Class Facility”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Wonderful and Fun Place Grsat Fans and local support with some added tourists. This is a Great ARENA Facility for Hockey PRICES are great Ticket Prices are very fair cheap by Toronto standards and a better brand of hockey and I know arena's comfortable place to watch the game or to see any event. With great site lines was their to see the Toronto Maple Leafs seen many times vs Tampa Bay Lightning some Locals sometimes complain about their own Stadium but it is a excellent facility a fun relaxing place to go and see a game. The temperature inside is cool it is a lot more accessible as you can tour the entire Stadium. Tickets were very fairly priced actually I thought lower than expected but I am Canadian we are used to be totally gouged by our professional sports teams. Steve Thomas is the Assistant Coach and Steven Stamko's both from Markham Unionville my hometown, a great Team very fast brand of Hockey Tampa Bay Area should be proud of their Stadium and Team they are "First Class" The Concession Stands are easily accessible and quite a variety of good food and drinks to choose from and very good pricing by Canadian Standards. The Restaurants next to Stadium you can have Dinner or Food but they weren't ready for the Leafs on-slaughter better to eat at the Forum is a great place to have beer and great food and their were Tail Gater's everywhere Party Tail Gate in Forum "Plaza Area" a Band and another thing Canadians aren't allowed to do Tail Gate outside the Stadium in the plaza, although the prices are fair compared to other NHL Canadian Hockey Rinks Facilities The Arena was clean and the seats were comfortable.The hometown crowd was also very pleasant to visitors as they are used to a lot of tourists this also makes it fun to watch Hockey there. The Tampa Bay Times Forum the cities of St. Petersburg Clearwater and Tampa are tourist and very Canadian friendly and the people are very friendly even if your cheering against their home Team! Great Venue oh ya easy access safe good parking safe and plenty of Police in the area. The Tampa Bay Lightning are a great young exciting team and are and have great young players and being from Toronto they are a very well managed and have great ownership and they are truest committed to their community and their Fans Hockey is a tough sell when it's 85 Degrees outside with sand beach fun and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico Good Prices great weather great Stadium good Hockey the Hockey Gods found Paradise!! When you leave they actually thank you for spending your money and coming to the Game Friendly Florida Canadians Welcome Come to see the Game. NOTE: For the price of two play-off Tickets in Toronto (we never make okay-offs once in 10 years) you can FLY to Florida and watch a play-off game here and get a Hotel and Flight package, for a 4 Day weekend,SunWing to St. Petersburg Beach at the Sirata Beach Resort. Canadians Welcome and treated great in southwest Florida. Tampa Bay Forum excellent Venue!!

“Be the THUNDER!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you are in town and want to catch a hockey game, then this is the place for you. You almost can't get a bad seat. You don't have to worry about obnoxious fans (like from Philly or Boston) because Tampa fans cheer for their team, not beat up the visiting fans. Enjoy a cold beer and cold ice.
