Students who want to be part of the inaugural hockey season in Happy Valley will get their chance on September 10. Student season ticket for the 16 home games will go on sale in the HUB that day for $128, or $10 for individual game tickets.
Penn State’s new $90 million arena is nearing completion and, by all accounts, will help set the standard for collegiate hockey rinks in the country. The student section is located directly behind the opposing team’s goal for two out of three periods at the steepest slope allowed by code. A virtual tour of the seating bowl is available here.
There are over 1000 student tickets available for purchase and seating is based on a first come first serve basis. Tickets for holiday games are also available for purchase later in the season. The additional space will allow more fans to enter the stadium, which was a common problem at the previous Greenberg Ice Pavilion.
