Frozen Four Tickets and Travel Information

President Obama may be a big college basketball fan—although the president’s tournament bracket is just as busted as most hoops fans—but it’s college hockey that will take center stage in the nation’s capital on April 9-11. The Frozen Four—college hockey’s answer to basketball’s Final Four—will be played in the Verizon Center in Washington, DC, and it will have a distinctly New England feel.

Boston University and the University of Vermont will square off in one semifinal on Thursday, April 9, and one of those Hockey East powers will play the winner of the other semifinal between Miami (Ohio) University and Bemidji State University on Saturday, April 11. Boston University has partnered with Anthony Travel to provide packages with hotel accommodations, transportation, and airline reservations. Call 877-284-2254 or visit the Anthony Travel web site for more information. Game tickets are not included in packages.

If you want to put together your own travel plans, non-stop airfares between Boston and either Dulles, Reagan Washington National, or Baltimore-Washington airports can be found for less than $200. Tickets to games are available on StubHub and other online ticket sites, and they are being distributed to students and season-ticket holders at the four participating schools. The only tickets being sold on Ticketmaster at the present time are for the Frozen Four Skills Challenge on Friday, April 10. Practices will be open to the public on Wednesday, April 8 and Friday, April 10. For more information on Frozen Four events, click here.
