    I'm not sure you've really ever been to Boston or Detroit. There's plenty to do in both for more than just one weekend.
    I can see this argument for Buffalo, and maybe to a lesser degree for Pittsburgh, but does Tampa really have (weather and Disney notwithstanding) all that much more to do and see than Beantown and the Motor City?

    I'm guessing the grouping is just to make the process logistically efficient for them with only 7 groups instead of 22.
    It's possible that the decline in demand for tickets may have something to do with it as well. There may have been multiple time slots for the different groups where the traffic was very slow if not non-existent. This might save some time. It will increase traffic at the very beginning of each group for sure. So if there's a location we really really want, we'll have to get online as early as possible.

    Re: Frozen Four Tickets - Priority Purchase Process

    Thanks for the update BC/HE. I bought tickets for St. Paul, but could not make it. I fit in the 16-19 range, forgot to order last year, and someone from the NCAA contacted me and offered the opportunity to buy two good seats for each game, better probably that I would have gotten going through the process. My wife and I have gone for years, but our team is unlikely to make it there again, and I wonder what the demand will be for tickets in Buffalo, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Boston yet again. Tampa is fine, will always go there, but, no disrespect to these fine cities, which we visited and enjoyed, but they are not places you would visit again if you have done it recently. I wonder if this grouping is to try to increase demand for tickets in such venues.

    New process to be initiated for Buffalo and beyond. Priority holders will be grouped to purchase instead of a couple of days at a time for each individual priority level. A big plus for those on the lower ends of groups while an incentive for those on the top of a group to try to advance into the next group. A portion of the email I just got from the NCAA: Note the level of 11 applies to me in this email. Everyone will get a similar email with their own priority listed.

    Dear Priority Ticket Holder,

    We hope you enjoyed the 2018 NCAA Men's Frozen Four and your visit to Saint Paul! If you were not able to join us in Minnesota, we look forward to seeing you in Buffalo in April!

    We would like to inform you of some changes coming to the Priority Ticket Purchase Process for the 2019 NCAA Men's Frozen Four at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y.

    The below table outlines changes to the Priority Ticket Purchase Process for not only Buffalo, but also future Frozen Fours. Priority ticket holders will now be grouped to determine their respective purchase date. Priority points will still be earned each year by purchasing Frozen Four tickets. As a reminder, earned priority points are permanent and you do not lose any points if you choose not purchase tickets for consecutive events.


    Priority Points Group Attendance Purchase Start Date
    22 A Perfect Attendance (since 1997) Monday, October 8
    20-21 B 20+ Years Thursday, October 11
    16-19 C 16-19 Years Monday, October 15
    11-15 D 11-15 Years Thursday, October 18
    6-10 E 6-10 Years Monday, October 22
    2-5 F 2-5 Years Thursday, October 25
    1 G 1 Year Monday, October 29


    Based on our records, below is your updated information following the 2018 Men's Frozen Four:
    •Priority Points: 11
    •Group: D
    •Purchase Start Date: Thursday, October 18
    If you need to update any of your contact information, please submit the changes to mensfrozenfour@ncaa.org and include your name, your previous information and your current information. You may also call the NCAA customer contact center at 866-208-0048 to provide your updated information over the phone.

    Thank you for your continued support of NCAA Hockey and we’ll see you in Buffalo!

    You are receiving this email because you are a Men's Frozen Four Priority Ticket Holder (PTH). You are a PTH because you purchased a ticket, in your name, through the NCAA for any Men's Frozen Four between 1997 (Milwaukee) and 2018 (Saint Paul).

    Re: Frozen Four Tickets - Priority Purchase Process

    Received a response from our expert on Frozen 4 tickets pgb-ohio and he says the seats available under this fan experience and ticket plan are in the ends and not the prime seat locations that seem to float around center ice out of the lottery system. So for a premium you can bypass the lottery but will not get any better seats than a mid level lottery recipient can get. This may be only a good way for a non priority holder to obtain ok seats but at a price significantly higher. One time buyers with big pockets may find it acceptable to get in this way at a location near them though.

    Not sure what to make of this but it seems that you can get priority seating ahead of time bypassing the lottery if you opt for the fan experience. Has this been the case in the past too or is it something new starting in Buffalo 2019? https://www.primesport.com/d/ncaa-me...aa_frozen_four

    Re: Frozen Four Tickets - Priority Purchase Process

    I was asked to repost this here:

    My wife and I each received an email from the NCAA offering the opportunity to purchase tickets in a presale before they go on sale to the general public. The presale will end on 27 November at 11:59 pm or when all tickets are sold. I believe that they got our emails emails from the annual raffle the NCAA holds for tickets to the next FF, so they are still marketing FF tickets to the college hockey fan base.

    That's great news; glad it worked out for both of you.

    And thanks to Chris Lerch for setting up the Sticky. This is how a community like USCHO should work -- members having each other's backs. Your Sticky has facilitated this, as we've just seen. Again, thanks.

    This number has been widely advertised both on the NCAA website and in e-mails sent to existing account holders. Just posting it here for convenience sake.

    With luck, BobF can tell us how it worked out. But failing that, it certainly couldn't hurt to call Customer Service.

    I, as the priority holder, am unreliable after pre-game festivities.
