We know, we know - you want to go to the game! We all do!
Below is what we can tell you about getting tickets to the game.
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will be working with the NHL, NHLPA, Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues, NBC Sports and Kraft to figure out all of the logistics associated with tickets. We expect to work through those details over the coming months and make an announcement at some point in July or August.
With that said, there are several things that are known right now. Below you’ll find all known details. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Tickets will be free to everyone who gets one.
There will be a lottery system of some sort, with entry to that lottery available for free.
Tickets will also be made available to morning skates for both teams. These will be free and done through the same lottery system.
The LOC is passionate about getting youth hockey players into the rink to experience as much of this as possible. Seating will be extremely limited, so it should be noted that not all youth hockey players in our area will get in, but this philosophy is something the committee has in mind.
In addition to the game and morning skates, there is every intention to have a slew of other great events that will help bring our community as close as possible to this once-in-a-lifetime event. Visit calumetcolosseum.com/events for a full list of events.
What will influence how tickets are distributed?
Seating space. At this point we do not have any idea how many people will be able to attend the game. We need to determine how many people can fit in the arena, then we need to see how much space will be used for logistics (remember, the game will be televised live on NBC Sports), and then get an idea on how many tickets can distribute.
Kraft Hockeyville. This event has taken place in more than a dozen small-town arenas over the last decade, and the people who run the event have a pretty good idea how things will work. The Local Organizing Committee will be following best practices from the crew helping to organize this event.
What can you do now?
Basically, nothing. We’d love to see you “like” our Facebook page, “follow” us on Instagram and Twitter, subscribe to receive email updates from us (below) and of course check back often at calumetcolosseum.com.
