A new legend has risen from the depths of the Puget Sound...the Seattle Kraken, the 32nd team in the National Hockey League (NHL), are the newest member of the bustling Seattle Sports scene and bring action-packed excitement to their games played at Climate Pledge Arena. Whether you're a die-hard hockey fan or a newcomer to the sport, a visit to the home of the Seattle Kraken promises an unforgettable experience. With 41 regular season games taking place at Climate Pledge Arena each season (between October and April), there are tons of opportunities to take in the heart-pounding action, with even more chances to see the coolest action in town when you count preseason games (which usually start mid-September) and—fingers crossed—possible postseason matchups (NHL postseason generally runs from mid-April to early June).
Attending a Seattle Kraken game is not just about the action on the ice; it's an all-encompassing experience. From the moment you step inside the arena, you'll be greeted by the buzz of pre-game excitement. Enjoy delicious local cuisine and craft beverages at the numerous food and drink options within the arena. Be sure to explore the Kraken Team Store for official merchandise and souvenirs to remember your visit.
Not only are Kraken games easily accessible from public transit, but using carbon-reducing public transit options is actively encouraged, with Kraken fans able to access free public transit passes included with their game tickets in the Kraken smartphone app. You can take the Link Light Rail from Seattle Southside to the Westlake station, and from there ride the monorail to the Seattle Center, where Climate Pledge Arena is located. The monorail has a special gameday recording that plays during rides to the Seattle Center on game days, and with the crowd full of excited hockey fans it makes for an especially festive and fun atmosphere!
