On January 17th, 2014 the Gophers will host the Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium. Are you surprised? Probably not if you follow this team closely. It's pretty well known that the UofM has wanted to do this for quite some time. Well it's finally official.
On that evening the Gopher Women will face Minnesota State at 4:30pm follow by the Gopher Men at 8pm. The men will face Ohio State in a BigTen Conference matchup. Probably not the team that Gopher fans would have liked to have played in their first outdoor game at home. I am guessing that the fan would have preferred UND, UW or maybe even UMD. But OSU it will be.
Tickets for the 2014 Hockey City Classic start at $15, are valid for both games and will go on sale to the general public Oct. 22. This is part of the season ticket package.
“The Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium will be a special event for the entire state of Minnesota,” University of Minnesota Director of Athletics Norwood Teague said. “Outdoor hockey is a prominent fixture of Minnesota culture and we know that partnering with Intersport for this event will guarantee an unbelievable experience for everyone involved.”
Men's Captain, Nate Condon, talks about the Hockey City Classic.

Given that their e-mail said they'd try to get "comparable" seating for season ticket holders, I find myself very interested to see where to stick me, and whether I'll be able to see a thing for the game (Normally Section 1 Row 1 right next to the goal judge)
