Mellon Arena to Host "Watch Party" on October 4th

The Pittsburgh Penguins will once again open the Mellon Arena so that fans can watch the away Penguins game on the Jumbotron. This time, they've set a "Watch Party" on Saturday, October 4th to see the Pens season-opener against the Ottawa Senators in Stockholm, Sweden. The game is set to begin at 2:30 pm (EDT) and admission is free.

Concession stands and PenStation will be open during this time.
Fans may enter Mellon Arena via Gate 1 located along Centre Avenue beginning at 11:30 am.

In addition to the Mellon Arena being open for fans to watch the pre-season opener against Ottawa on the 4th, they have planned free tours of the facility and family skating sessions from noon - 5:00 PM.

Skating sessions run as follows:
  • noon - 1:30 PM
  • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
  • 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Skaters must bring their own skates and anyone under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Sessions will be on a first come, first served basis and only 300 skaters per session will be permitted.

The tours will depart from the East Concourse every 45 minutes (for more information, visit the Mellon Arena webpage).
