Couldn’t get a ticket for the hottest show in town Saturday night, the Seattle Kraken’s first game at Climate Pledge Arena? Don’t worry – 710 ESPN Seattle has you covered as we streamed video live on YouTube from inside of the brand new, state of the art arena under the same roof that housed the Seattle Coliseum and KeyArena.

After CPA debut, Seattle Kraken aim to make it ‘tough building to play in’

Live through us as we see Seattle Kraken fans (and maybe a few Canucks fans) encounter the new fan experience, pouring into the concourse, making their way through concessions and finding their seats, all under the backdrop of a brand new arena. We cover just about every square inch of the areas fans have access to do in the two hour-plus video.

Is there anything better than that rush you get from walking in from the car (or monorail), whooping it up with other hockey fans, waiting in line at the metal detectors, and finally getting inside the arena at Seattle Center? No, there’s not. See what it was like in the video embedded at the top of this post.

The Seattle Kraken may have lost Saturday night 4-2 to Vancouver, but they’ll be back in action in Climate Pledge Arena at 7 p.m. Tuesday when the Montreal Canadiens come to town. Follow the Kraken all season long right here on 710Sports.com and on the radio on 710 ESPN Seattle.
