I attended the Stadium Series at Dodger Stadium earlier this year and it was amazing. The atmosphere was fun, the experience was electric and the presentation was wonderful. I was afraid that the weather would be a major concern but since it was after sunset, it was perfect for a fan like me.
So this news of the Sharks possibly hosting one of these outdoor games themselves is no surprise. This was what I expected once I saw what Los Angeles was able to do. The Sharks are a big enough draw, especially being the only Bay Area hockey team. The two possible venues of AT&T Park or Levi’s Stadium would be perfect for this.
The entire Bay Area has always supported the Sharks and this would be great for businesses nearby. Plus, it would draw major national exposure.
Could they even make this the Winter Classic game? That seems unlikely due to the weather issues that may come through, so that must mean the Stadium Series will be the route they go with here.
I am excited for this. I want to go to this. I already did one outdoor game. I want another one.
