In one month's time, it's about to be on like Donkey Kong.

We've been through a lot together, haven't we? When Nationwide Arena opened its doors to NHL hockey 13 years ago, we envisioned it becoming one of the best atmospheres in professional sports. This city's pride and passion for its teams helped make it clear early on that the Blue Jackets would enjoy a significant home ice advantage.

Between memorable hat tricks, harrowing victories and unforgettable heartbreaks, YOU, our fans, have been there to support us. You've been there to rally behind Columbus, to defend your team, and defend our building.

Remember the pulsating din of Game 4 of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, the game that still sends a chill down your spine when you think about it? We want that and so much more, and as we continue this new chapter of Blue Jackets hockey, we need your help (but we think you'll be just fine in tagging along for the ride).

It's time to #DefendNWA, stand up for our city, our team and our rink to make this the best home ice advantage in the NHL. What does that mean? It means that the Blue Jackets family - fans, players, coaches, management, staff and the community - is all in this together, just like John Davidson so often says. Everyone pulls the rope, everyone does their part, and we're well on our way.

And it begins now.

Single game tickets for the Blue Jackets 2013-14 season go on sale FRIDAY - that's Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. Outside of presale opportunities, this is your first (and best) chance to secure seats to the must-see games at Nationwide Arena this season. The Penguins, Flyers, Rangers, Sabres, Capitals, Maple Leafs...they're all coming to our barn to see what we're all about. It's up to all of us to make sure that these "business trips" conclude with not-so-happy endings.

As a special pre-sale opportunity for Blue Jackets fans within the state of Ohio, single game tickets for the 2013-14 season will be available to YOU exclusively until Tuesday, September 10th at 9am.

Sound good? Alright, let's get it started.

Text DEFEND to 90561 and you will receive pre-sale access to ALL Blue Jackets home games before they go on sale to the general public.


ALSO: We're going to give you the opportunity (starting TODAY) to win an array of prizes, from autographed pucks to jerseys, sticks, tickets and much more.

All you have to do is upload a photo, Vine video or Instagram video to the form below and show us how YOU plan to #DefendNWA! What are you waiting for? Let's do this!
