According to a news release from the NCAA, the annual Frozen Four ticket purchase process will now be conducted beginning Oct. 1 and will no longer involve submitting an application for the opportunity to purchase tickets.
Now, ticket buyers will be invited to purchase tickets, based on their priority level, and select their own seat locations at the time of the order submission.
This new process will become effective with the 2013 Frozen Four to be held in Pittsburgh.
“This new system gives our priority ticket holders something tangible,” said chair of the Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee and deputy athletics director at Wisconsin Sean Frazier in a statement. “A lot of people never fully understood what priority status got them. With this new system, it leaves no doubt because they will be able to pick their exact seat location first.”
Each priority level will be given a designated date to begin the ticket purchase process. Individuals with the highest priority level will be invited to purchase tickets starting Oct. 1. Individuals with the next highest priority level will have the opportunity to purchase tickets shortly thereafter. This process will continue until the tickets available been sold. Each priority ticket purchaser is limited to a maximum of four tickets.
All orders must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EST on Nov. 30. Tickets will be mailed in late February 2013.
