Season ticket packages begin at $275 per seat; packages include a 20-game home schedule, free parking and admission to all BSU women’s hockey home games.
“This new base price not only opens the door for new fans to be a part of the action, it also provides current season ticket holders a chance to maximize the opportunity for contributions to Beaver Pride,” said Jake Bluhm, coordinator of Bemidji State’s athletic fundraising and booster organization, Beaver Pride.

Representatives from Beaver Athletics, Beaver Pride and the Sanford Center box office will be on hand to answer questions about available seating options and the benefits of Beaver Pride membership.
Beaver Hockey is defined by a 56-year tradition of excellence, with 21 conference titles, 13 small-college national championships and a trip to the 2009 NCAA Frozen Four. The Beavers have seen 82 student-athletes recognized as All-Americans, and seven former Beavers have gone on to play on hockey’s grandest stage—the National Hockey League.
Since 1967-68, the Beavers have treated their fans to an average of 11 home wins per season. After winning more than 500 games in 43 seasons at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse – a hallowed barn revered by fans and feared by opponents – the Bemidji State hockey programs made the move to the state-of-the-art Sanford Center in 2010. The building is the centerpiece of Bemidji’s $90 million South Shore Development project and is widely regarded as of the one of finest facilities in college hockey.
Bemidji State traditionally plays one of the toughest home schedules in the nation, and the 2013-14 campaign will be no different. The Beavers will play a 14-game home-ice schedule in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, home to 57 national championships and widely regarded as the finest conference in college hockey. BSU’s home conference schedule features in-state rival Minnesota State, Mankato, traditional rival Lake Superior State and a resurrection of BSU’s storied rivalry with Alabama-Huntsville. The Beavers will also play six home non-conference games against the likes of Miami University, North Dakota and Minnesota on its home ice.
