Tech hockey offering annual early bird ticket sales

HOUGHTON – Michigan Tech is offering its annual early bird hockey season ticket sale until July 13.

Fans can purchase ticket packages for just $280 for adults and $150 for youth, a savings of $49 for adults and $27 based on regular season ticket pricing. Each package includes a reserved seat at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena to all home games encompassing a 16-game regular season schedule and three home first-round WCHA Playoff games. The $280 discount price breaks down to a little more than $14 per game, which is a 26 percent savings from the face value of single-game tickets ($20) and 15 percent off the regular price of season tickets.

Tickets can be purchased and renewed by calling the Central Ticket Office at 906-487-2073 or by visiting in person Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Last year’s reserved season ticket holders will have until July 13 to reclaim their seats for the 2018-19 campaign. Beginning on July 14, all unclaimed reserved seats will go on-sale to the general public.

We encourage you to become a member of the Blue Line Club and receive some great discounts.
