All ticket types, both all-session and single day-session, to the 2022 NCHC Frozen Faceoff are now 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. Single day-session tickets include one ticket to either both games on Friday, March 18 or the championship 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 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.
