Columbus Blue Jackets Panoramic
This panorama, taken by James Blakeway, showcases the Columbus Blue Jackets playing at their hometown arena in Columbus, Ohio. It all began in June 1997, when the National Hockey League® awarded the city of Columbus an expansion franchise that would later be named the Blue Jackets. Just over three years later, on October 17, 2000, the club played its inaugural game before a sellout crowd of 18,136 fans. The name “Blue Jackets” was chosen to celebrate the patriotism, pride and rich Civil War history of the state of Ohio and the city of Columbus. The Blue Jackets play their home games at Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus, which opened in 2000.
