Seattle is a city that loves its sports. Some of the most dedicated fans in football are Seahawk enthusiasts, once setting a World Record for loudest crowd roar during a 2013 Seattle Seahawks game. 12’s are often seen on Friday’s before a Sunday game turning Seattle into a sea of blue (known as Blue Friday) in support of our beloved Seahawks. And this year, Seattle’s professional sports scene upped its game with the first season of the region’s national NHL team, the Seattle Kraken. The addition of the newest NHL franchise comes alongside the launch of the newly opened Climate Pledge Arena, less than a mile from Spire.
Cheer on the Seahawks and experience gameday at the loudest stadium in the NFL this season, less than 2 miles from Spire or catch the game at a nearby sportsbar. Taste Seattle all in one location at the PNW Marketplace and experience a rotating market featuring local chefs and restaurants. From traditional to savory bites – these menus and beer lists are worthy of Seattle Seahawks & Sounders FC fans. Options are many and inspired by Northwest flavors.
The last regular season home game at Lumen Field happens on January 2 against the Detroit Lions. Arrive early and check out Touchdown City for an interactive football experience where fans of all ages can enjoy games and analysis, contests, photo opportunities, live music, airbrush tattoos and hair painting, and more or pregame activities including live music and DJs, food trucks, exclusive beer, and value-priced drinks in the Muckleshoot Plaza.
Support the Seattle Kraken at the Climate Pledge Arena where an iconic roof stands nobly against the Olympic Mountains. Beneath it awaits danger…the subterranean lair of the Seattle Kraken. The regular season runs through April, giving ample time to grab your tickets and cheer on our new hockey team and release your inner beast at the game.
Make sure to visit 32 Bar & Grills, the local hockey bar in the heart of the Kraken’s lair. Meet friends and fellow fans at this custom 5,000 square foot pub and grill designed with amazing overlooks into both the Starbucks Rink, where the Kraken practice, and the Smartsheet Rink. Enjoy some of the best views in all of Seattle sports featuring the best of pub fare. Peruse Seattle hockey memorabilia, unique Kraken art and catch some hockey action on one of the 17 high-definition monitors. Why the name 32? 32,000 fans made it possible for the Seattle Kraken to become the NHL’s 32nd franchise, and 32 degrees (Fahrenheit) is also the freezing point for ice.
