  • Violence, fighting, threatening, taunting, physical or verbal harassment;
  • Making abusive, sexist, racist, offensive or obscene remarks or gestures;

Season ticket members and suite holders are reminded that they are responsible for the behavior of anyone using their tickets and that failure to abide by this Fan Code of Conduct by suite holders, Tampa Bay Lightning season ticket members, or by anyone using their tickets, may result in loss of season ticket member or suite holder privileges.

All guests are reminded that bottles, coolers, and containers of any kind are not allowed into Arena and may be confiscated; provided, however, that fans will be allowed to bring an empty plastic bottle to fill with water at the Arena’s touchless water bottle filler. VSG reserves the right to limit the size of bags, purses or backpacks permitted within the Arena. Guests are advised to consult the Arena websites for specific policies with respect to bags.
