Minnesota to Host 2014 Hockey City Classic
The University of Minnesota men's hockey team, which enters its first campaign in the new Big Ten Conference this fall, will host the 2014 Hockey City Classic on Jan. 17 on-campus at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, along with the defending NCAA champion University of Minnesota women's team.
The Golden Gopher women will host WCHA rival Minnesota State that day at 4:30 p.m. Central time, while the Minnesota men will face Big Ten opponent Ohio State at 8 p.m.
"The Hockey City Classic at TCF Bank Stadium will be a special event for the entire state of Minnesota," said Minnesota Director of Athletics Norwood Teague at the Gophers' web site. "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."
This will be the first time that either the Golden Gopher men or women will take part in an outdoor contest.
Tickets for the 2014 Hockey City Classic start at $15, are valid for admission to both games, and will go on sale to the general public on Oct. 22 at either www.mygophersports.com or by calling 612-624-8080.
