    ~ FENWAY PARK TO HOST HOCKEY EAST DOUBLEHEADER ON JANUARY 8, 2010 ~


    BOSTON - The Boston Red Sox, Fenway Sports Group and the Hockey East Association announced Thursday that historic Fenway Park will host a Hockey East doubleheader on Friday, January 8, 2010.

    Boston College and Boston University will face off in the menís game at 7:30 p.m., while Northeastern University and the University of New Hampshire will play in the womenís game at 4 p.m.

    ďWe are very excited to bring college hockey to Fenway Park in this once in a lifetime event. Itís great for the growth of the sport, as we have seen what the Winter Classic has done for the NHL and its fans,Ē said Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna.

    ďWe are really excited to host the very best of college hockey talent next January at Fenway Park as part of the Hockey East at Fenway doubleheader,Ē said Fenway Sports Group President Sam Kennedy. ďAs a born and bred New Englander myself who grew up playing hockey, I am eager to watch the UNH and NU womenís hockey teams face off against each other along with the last two NCAA menís ice hockey champions, BC and BU, renew their storied rivalry in the shadow of the Green Monster.Ē

    The menís game between the Eagles and Terriers features the last two NCAA National Champions. The game will mark the 248th meeting in the all-time series in one of the most intense rivalries in all of sports, which dates back to Feb. 6, 1918. BU leads the all-time series with the Eagles, 123-106-17. The Huskies and Wildcats rivalry dates back to 1975, one of the oldest in womenís college history. The game at Fenway will mark the 110th all-time meeting between the two teams.

    New England Sports Network (NESN) will broadcast the menís game live from Fenway Park across New England. The game will mark the first ever womenís college outdoor game and it marks the third menís outdoor game in the modern era. On October 6, 2001 Michigan and Michigan State played the first college outdoor game with 74,544 fans watching at MSUís Spartan Stadium. On February 11, 2006, Ohio State and Wisconsin attracted 40,890 fans to the Frozen Tundra Hockey Classic at Lambeau Field.

    Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, September 17 beginning at 12 pm. Tickets for the doubleheader will start at just $5. For more information on the event and details regarding ticket availability, please log on to www.tickets.com/fenwayhockey.

                I am all over this. I think I was more excited for the announcement of these games than the Bruins game. Hope everyone gets tickets!

                  especially since these tickets are much more affordable for normal families.

                    And that the Bruins game is a lottery to buy 2 tickets. Doesn't work when we have two boys. I'm hoping to max out on these since there are 6 boys in my fiancee's family and this solves christmas for half of them LOL

                          Does anyone know the tickets.com phone number to order tickets today at noon.
                          Also the link previously posted for fenway tickets does not give any directions on where to go online today to get them.

                          If anyone has more information that would be great. Especially a phone number.

                            visit the link at noon, it was the same way for the pre-sale, there wasn't anything there until ticket sale time and then the ordering info showed up at noon. I dont' know if tickets.com has a phone ordering system.
