Tickets for Frozen Fenway 2012 go on sale Tuesday, September 13 at noon
BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox, Fenway Sports Management (FSM) and the Hockey East Association announced today that tickets for the
January 7th Hockey East doubleheader will go on sale to the general public beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 13 at noon. The outdoor
men's college hockey doubleheader will feature the University of Vermont (UVM) Catamounts against the University of Massachusetts (UMass)
Minutemen at 4:00 p.m., and the University of New Hampshire (UNH) Wildcats against the University of Maine (UMaine) Black Bears at 7:30 p.m.
The back-to-back college hockey games are part of Frozen Fenway 2012, a two week series of ice events at Fenway Park.
Tickets are available at redsox.com/frozenfenway or by calling (877) RED-SOX9. Fans with disabilities may also call (877) RED-SOX9 to purchase
accessible seating. The Red Sox' TTY number for hearing-impaired fans is (617) 226-6644. Prices start as low as $5 and tickets will be
valid for both games.
While the UNH and UMaine hockey rivalry has often been referred to as the "Border War," the upcoming doubleheader will create a four-way
border war between the four competing state schools. The hockey games at Fenway Park will be the 56th and 111th all-time meeting between
UVM/UMass and UNH/UMaine respectively.
In the all-time series history, UVM leads the series with UMass, 33-15-6 in 54 meetings. UMaine leads the series with UNH, 56-48-5 in 109 meetings.
Both UNH and Maine were nationally ranked last year with UNH finishing second in the Hockey East standings and Maine finishing fifth.
New England Sports Network (NESN) is scheduled to broadcast the college hockey doubleheader in addition to the Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver
Canucks game on January 7. This special broadcast of the "Hockey Day in New England" tripleheader begins at 1 p.m. when the Bruins take on
the Canucks for the first time since the team's epic 7-game victory in last year's Stanley Cup Finals. The network will then move to Fenway Park
where it will showcase the two great Hockey East matchups at 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
