The NCAA announced today that the rink for college hockey’s championship event will be in the middle of Ford Field next April, just like the basketball court will be in a couple of weeks.
There had been talk of putting the rink in an end zone and curtaining off part of the stadium because of crowd-size and viewing concerns.
With the central setup, the event is expected to shatter Frozen Four attendance records. Capacity will be more than 70,000. The record attendance for a Frozen Four game is 19,432, established when Michigan State defeated Boston College for the NCAA title in 2007 in St. Louis.
Tickets go on sale April 18 at ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
