NHL: 15 Winter Classics not enough

Posted By Graig Woodburn On December 4, 2009 @ 1:55 pm In General | 3 Comments

The NHL [1] sent out a press release Friday afternoon with some interesting information on the Winter Classic set for New Year’s Day at Fenway. According to the league:

· Registrations on NHL [2].com for an opportunity to purchase tickets to the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic surpassed 307,000. That eclipsed the number of registrations for last season’€™s game by more than 25 percent.

· If each person who registered was given the right to purchase two tickets, the NHL could host 15 Winter Classic games at Fenway and still not meet the ticket demand.

· General seating and standing room only tickets are already sold out for the Jan. 8 college hockey doubleheader at Fenway.

· The recently announced celebrity/legends charity hockey game on Jan. 2 at Fenway has sold more than 25,000 tickets.
