BEMIDJI, Minn. -- Where will you sit for the 2012-13 season?
The 2012-13 collegiate hockey season is just over a month away and Bemidji State University and its men’s and women’s ice hockey programs are inviting you to be a part of the action.
Great season-ticket seats still remain. Tuesday, Sept. 11, BSU and Beaver Pride are hosting Select-A-Seat Night at Sanford Center to give you a chance to find the perfect point of view to another exciting Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) season at Sanford Center.
Gate 2 will be open from 5-7 p.m. providing potential season-ticket holders an opportunity to view which seat locations are available for the upcoming season and to get a behind-the-scenes look around Sanford Center--one of the premier venues in collegiate hockey.
Bemidji State Athletic staff, Beaver Pride leadership and Sanford Center Box Office staff will be on hand to provide information about ticket prices and Beaver Pride membership benefits. There will also be an opportunity to meet the Beavers, enjoy a free hot dog, get photos taken with Bucky and grab a free 2012-13 schedule poster or schedule card.
Season-ticket packages begin at $295 per seat and include 17 women’s hockey games, 19 men’s hockey games and any home WCHA playoff action played at Sanford Center in 2012-13.
Those unable to participate in Select-A-Seat Night can call Jake Bluhm in the Beaver Pride Office at (218) 755-2827 for more information or to purchase 2012-13 season tickets.
