ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Blues are making sure everyone's entrance, enjoyment and navigation at the new Enterprise Center is as easy and enjoyable as ever. That's why they've released a list of everything new that fans need to know before attending a game this season. 

The first home game will be this Friday at 7 p.m. against the Columbus Blue Jackets, although it's a preseason game. If you've got tickets or are planning to go, make sure you check out these tips:

We've Gone Mobile: Enter a game at Enterprise Center without the need of a physical ticket with mobile entry.  To view your mobile tickets, you can use the NHL Blues App or log on to your Account Manager via the browser on your mobile device to access and present the ticket barcode at the gate.  Now there is no need to worry about losing a ticket or realizing you left your tickets at home when you arrive at the venue. For more information on mobile ticketing please click here.

No Bags No Problems: This season, express lanes will be designated at every Plaza Level entrance for fans to enter that are not bringing in bags. This will help fans enter the arena faster. 

New Gate Times: The doors to Enterprise Center will open 90 minutes prior to puck drop for every game this season. As an added benefit, Season Ticket Holders can enter the building 105 minutes prior to game time by entering through the STH Express entrance at the Main Atrium and Sprint Entrances. 

Bud Light Happy Hour: Join us for the Bud Light Happy Hour prior to every home game this season. There will be live entertainment along with specially priced food and beverage options in the new Anheuser-Busch Biergarten just inside the 14th Street Entrance and at the Bud Light Sports Pub on Club Level.  

Wayfinding: You may have noticed Portals on your tickets - we've numbered every entrance into the bowl so that you know which entrance is easist to get to your seats from - no more climbing over a row of people! Click here to find your Plaza Level Portals and here to find your Mezzanine Level Portals before arriving at Enterprise Center.

STL Authentics: With four STL Authentics stores (two on Plaza Level, a new location on Club Level and a new location on Mezzanine Level), there is sure to be a location convenient for you to shop in while at a Blues game this season. With more space and variety, the shopping experience is better than ever! In addition to gamedays, the STL Authentics store location will be open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And starting on Sunday, Oct. 7, the store will be open Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Lion's Choice: A St. Louis favorite, Lion's Choice has a new location between Portals 4 and 5 on the Plaza Level.

How Can We Help? If any issues arise at the game simply text “BLUES” with your seat location and issue to 69050 and we will be there to assist.

Smoke Break: Smoking access will open at the 10 minute mark of the first period and close at the 10 minute mark of the 3rd period for all Blues games. Guests can now exit any of the three Plaza Level entries after having their ticket scanned out. Guests are allowed to smoke outside as long as they are at least 15 feet from any entrance. When guests re-enter they will go back through all venue entry procedures as mandated by the NHL (empty pockets, walk through metal detectors, bag checks, and ticket scanning).

Sing-A-Long: This season, your vocal group can be a part of the in-game show! Your choir can join Charles Glenn during pregame to welcome the team to the ice while singing “When the Blues Go Marching In” or you can pay tribute to our country with Blues organist Jeremy Boyer with an original arrangement of “God Bless America!” To sign up your group for a game call 314-622-5454 today.

Bud Light 4th Period: Starting with Opening Night on Thursday, Oct. 4 join us postgame in the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten and Bud Light Sports Pub for the Bud Light 4th Period! Celebrate an exciting win and let traffic die down as you hang out postgame with discounted food and beverage and live entertainment. The Bud Light 4th Period will keep the party going up to two hours after each game.
