The 2000 Frozen Four, to be held at the Providence Civic Center on April 6 and 8, has sold out. The event has generated enormous demand, bringing in a total of over 12,000 ticket applications. Ticket sales began back on April 1, and have sold out in less than three months.
Hosting the Frozen Four this year is Providence College and their athletic director John Marinatto.
According to Marinatto, “We are excited about the interest in the event and we are committed to making the 2000 Frozen Four one of the best finals ever.”
Tom Jacobs, the NCAA senior director of championships, said, “This speaks extremely well for the Providence community and college hockey that the event is sold out at such an early date.”
Providence has been an active host to the NCAA since 1978 when they hosted its first NCAA championship. The Providence Civic Center has a seating capacity of 11,484, and this will mark the sixth time that the Frozen Four has been played there.
Despite being sold out, tickets are being held in reserve for each of the finalist schools.
