MADISON, Wis. – Badger fans have the chance to be part of UW hockey history as the team continues its quest for its seventh NCAA title. Wisconsin takes on RIT in the semifinal round of the NCAA Frozen Four, and three-game ticket packages are now available for as low as $40.
The 2010 Frozen Four will take place April 8 and 10 at Detroit’s Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions. Wisconsin faces off against RIT in the first semifinal of the Frozen Four on April 8 with puck drop slated for 4 p.m. CT while Boston College and Miami play in the second semifinal at 7:30 p.m. CT that evening. The winners will meet in the NCAA title game at 6 p.m. CT on April 10.
Fans can be part of the action with an all-session ticket package, good for both Frozen Four semifinal games and the national championship game, for as low as $40 directly through Ford Field at ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Ticket packages range in price from $40-$189.
Ford Field will seat just over 36,000 fans with anticipation of breaking the attendance record for an NCAA Men’s Frozen Four game, which was set at 19,432 in the 2007 championship game at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, when Michigan State defeated Boston College 3-1.
In addition to being part of a record-breaking crowd, fans have the chance to witness history as senior forward Blake Geoffrion could be the first Badger in program history to receive the Hobey Baker Memorial Award on April 9. Geoffrion is one of three Hobey Hat Trick finalists for the award given to college hockey’s top player each season. Tickets start at $10 for the Friday night events.
Friday night at the Frozen Four also includes an autograph session with team finalists, presentation of both the Hockey Humanitarian Award along with the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, a paralympic sled hockey demonstration, announcement of the RBK Hockey/AHCA Division I Men’s All-American Team and the Frozen Four Skills Challenge.
UW women’s hockey senior forward Kyla Sanders will represent the University of Wisconsin in the Frozen Four Skills Challenge. Competitions will include puck control relay, fastest skater, hardest shot, rapid-fire shooting, accuracy shooting and penalty shot.
Tickets to the Friday night session are available for $10 or $5 for groups of 15 or more. Fans may purchase tickets online through ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
