Dates Announced For Penn State Hockey Ticket Sales

Mark your calendars, Hockey Valley fans. Penn State Athletics announced ticket-sale dates this afternoon for single matches, student season tickets, and the Buffalo Sabres-Minnesota Wild preseason NHL game.

Student tickets will again go on sale bright and early on September 8. The sale starts at 7 a.m. and will stay open until tickets sell out. Be on your game though, as the 1,000 tickets to hang out in the Roar Zone sold out in three and five minutes in the last two years. The ticket package includes 16 home games at $143 plus the invaluable opportunity to chant things like “It’s all your fault!” at opposing goalies.

Students who buy season tickets will also have the option to purchase a seat for the NHL preseason game at a $25 add-on. Those who opt for the upgrade will also get a free ticket to the international game against Queen’s College of Ontario. The student ticket packages exclude the November 18-19 and March 3-4 series because most students will be heading home for break anyway. Students who want to attend just the NHL or international games will have the opportunity to purchase tickets at a to-be-determined date after September 8, pending availability.

Speaking of the NHL preseason game, hockey season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to get their hands on tickets. Those with season tickets will have the right of first refusal to purchase tickets for the September 26 match-up, aka they will get a chance to get their hands on tickets before they go on sale to the general public.

Season ticket holders will also get a head start in buying tickets for the international game. These tickets will run $10 or $20 for non-premium and premium seats, respectively. Season ticket holders will be able to buy either or both of these tickets starting Monday and running through Friday, July 29 through their ticket account manager. Season ticket holders as well as Nittany Lion Club members can buy tickets to single games from August 4-8.

Those in the market for single-games at Pegula will get their chance to purchase tickets starting August 9, pending availability. Tickets will run between $12-$60 per game and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster, at the BJC ticket office, or by calling 1-800-NITTANY.

Student tickets will be available through the Ticketmaster student account manager and you can find more information here. We’ll have some tips and tricks for navigating the sale as it gets closer.

Pegula Ice Arena is by far one of the best atmospheres in cawlidge hawkey…unless, of course, you don’t play for Penn State. Tickets will go fast so be ready to get yours and get in on the experience.
