2022 Frozen Faceoff Tickets


After not holding its championship tournament at its true home the last two seasons due to the pandemic, the NCHC is returning to Saint Paul for the Frozen Faceoff at Xcel Energy Center in 2022. 

All-session tickets to the 2022 NCHC Frozen Faceoff are currently on sale to the general public. All-session ticket packages to the 2022 NCHC Frozen Faceoff include two tickets: one ticket to see both semifinals on Friday, March 18 and one ticket to see the championship game on Saturday, March 19.

For the first time in 2022, the Frozen Faceoff will not include a third-place game, but rather renewing ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to the Minnesota Wild game on the afternoon of Championship Saturday, as the Wild host the Chicago Blackhawks on March 19.

On March 18, the first Frozen Faceoff semifinal begins at 4:00 p.m. CT with the second game at 7:30 p.m. CT. The following day, the Wild game starts at 1 p.m. CT with the NCHC Frozen Faceoff championship at 7:30 p.m. CT.

All-session packages for 2022 start at $65 and can be purchased online at For groups of 12 or more call 651-312-3486. For suite rental information, please email or call 651-312-3485.

Fans who purchased all-session tickets to the 2020 Frozen Faceoff (the 2020 event was ultimately cancelled) had the first opportunity to buy tickets to the 2022 championship and had to have completed their renewal by Friday, Oct. 22. Fans who renewed their Frozen Faceoff tickets by Oct. 22 received discounted pricing from the 2022 general on-sale price. 

Currently only all-session tickets are available for purchase. Single-session tickets will be made available to the public in February. Students of NCHC member schools will also be able to purchase student-priced tickets starting in February.

For groups of 12 or more, please call 651-312-3486. For suite rental information, please email or call 651-312-3485.

All tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will be digital tickets and can be accessed through your mobile phone.

Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.

Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.

Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.

Guests are reminded to fully charge their smartphones prior to arriving at the venue in order to access mobile tickets. Click here for more information.

NO BAGS are permitted inside the arena to help reduce staff touchpoints and expedite entry times for guests. This includes clutches, clear bags, purses, backpacks, fanny packs, etc. Medical and diaper bags are permitted at Gate 1 and are subject to x-ray screening. Small wallet in pocket or on lanyard permitted.

Along with the three NCHC games and the Wild game at Xcel Energy Center, a NCHC Fan Fest will be held prior to games each day. Other events, including the annual NCHC Fan Skate and NCHC Awards Celebration, will take place on the eve of the Frozen Faceoff on Thursday, March 17.
