COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – With the 2017 NCHC Frozen Faceoff a month away, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference has announced that both general admission and single-day session tickets to the conference’s championship tournament will go on sale on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The fourth annual NCHC Frozen Faceoff is set for Friday and Saturday, March 17-18 in downtown Minneapolis at Target Center, which is in the midst of a significant renovation.
While all-session tickets to the 2017 Frozen Faceoff have been on sale since September, fans will now have the option to purchase tickets to only one day of the Frozen Faceoff if they cannot attend all four games. Single-day session tickets are available for both semifinal games on Friday, March 17 or a Saturday session ticket provides access to the third-place and championship games on March 18. All-session tickets, including a general admission option, consist of tickets for both days (two tickets total) and all four games.
On March 17, the first semifinal begins at 4:00 p.m. CT with the second game at 7:30 p.m. CT. The following day, the third-place game begins at 3:30 p.m. CT with the championship at 7:30 p.m. CT. Re-entry will be allowed between games.
Both single-day session and all-session tickets for the 2017 NCHC Frozen Faceoff may be purchased by visiting AXS.com. Tickets may also be purchased at Target Center’s Box Office.
General admission tickets in the upper levels of Target Center now provide fans another option for both all-session and single-day session tickets. All-session general admission tickets are available for $50, while single-session GA tickets are only $25. All general admission tickets are good in sections 201-207, 215-227 and 235-240 (Seating Chart).
Three other price points are available for single-day session tickets, as well. For premium seats in the middle sections of the lower bowl (sections 109-113 and 129-133), single-day session tickets will be $75 per person. For all other lower bowl seats and upper level sections 208-214 and 228-234 (rows A-H), tickets are $65. The remaining seats in the premium upper level sections (reserved seats in row J and higher in sections 208-214 and 228-234) cost $35 per ticket.
All-session tickets remain the better deal however, with lower bowl seats available for $135 or $120, as well as premium upper level seats on sale for $65.
The NCHC is also offering special ticket pricing for students of NCHC member schools, who may purchase up to two all-session general admission tickets for $30 a piece per school ID. Student tickets may ONLY be purchased online using a school-specific code that is available through each school’s ticket office.
Along with the hockey games at Target Center, NCHC Fan Fest will once again be held prior to games each day, while an official NCHC Post-Game Party will also be offered each night at The Pint. Other events surrounding the NCHC Frozen Faceoff include an NCHC Fan Skate at Target Center and the NCHC Awards Celebration both on Thursday, March 16. More information on these events will be released in early March.
Discounted hotel rates are also available in downtown Minneapolis for Frozen Faceoff fans through Meet Minneapolis Housing Services here.
Last season, all four NCHC Frozen Faceoff participants also earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament, with two making the NCAA Frozen Four and North Dakota becoming the conference’s first national champion.
