The Columbus Blue Jackets Nationwide Arena home requires over $60 million in repairs to avoid major issues. Maintaining NHL arenas is challenging, as most modern facilities become outdated after about 25 years.

Significant repairs are necessary to keep Nationwide Arena in good condition. These repairs range from cosmetic updates to major structural fixes. Without these updates, the Blue Jackets risk their arena becoming unusable. Jason Newland of The Hockey News shared a list of required repairs:
Roof: $9 million
Cooling Towers: $7.5 million
New Scoreboard: $8.5 million
Fire Alarm Replacement: $2.5 million
Suite Renovations: $1 million
Club Level Renovations: $1.7 million
Concession Stand Overhaul: $1.5 million
Party Tower LED Improvements: $675,000
While this list doesn't cover all the needed repairs, it highlights some crucial updates. A new scoreboard is a luxury, but repairing the roof and ensuring proper cooling are essential. Replacing the fire alarm system is crucial for the safety of everyone in the building.
With multiple teams using the arena, the cost won't fall entirely on the Blue Jackets. However, these repairs must happen sooner rather than later to ensure the facility remains functional and safe.
