Current Men's Hockey Season Ticket Holders

3 Key points for Current Season Ticket Holders in Men’s Hockey
  1. Current season ticket holders who do not want to change their current season ticket location and/or add additional seats to their account, nor want to select season parking, do not need to log in to Badger Select. To order season tickets, the same process as previous years applies, of returning the ticket order form and contribution form (when applicable) by June 15th is required.
  2. After completing the order and contribution (if applicable) process for season tickets that you had the previous season, you will automatically be assigned a personalized selection date and time during the BADGER SELECT process, based on Badger Select rank: 2018 Annual Giving Level and priority points as of December 31, 2017, and years of purchase for non-donor season ticket holders; which runs late July through early August. You then can choose to log in during that time, or any time after until the end of the process to view available seats at the Kohl Center.

    Badger Select Rank is first based on 2018 Annual Giving level, and then by priority point total within each giving level as of December 31, 2017. This has been implemented due to the interpretation of the new tax law for 2018.
  3. During the Badger Select process, as a current season ticket holder, you have the ability to purchase additional seats or swap your current seats for other available seats.

Importance of Badger Select Rank

Your Badger Select rank will determine your priority in the Badger Select process. The higher your Badger Select rank, the earlier your selection date and time will be in Badger Select which may increase the pool of quality seats to choose from.

Badger Select rank for Badger Select is based on 2018 Annual Giving Level and priority points as of December 31, 2017. (Please note Badger Select rank is different from Donor Rank.)

Recommended Minimum Per Seat Contributions

As you consider taking part in Badger Select, for either additional season tickets or a seat change, please note the recommended minimum annual contributions for the opportunity to order seats in certain sections:

Sections 107, 108, 109, 121, 122, 123, 207, 209, 221, 222 and 223 – $50 per seat
Sections 106, 110, 120, 124 – $25 per seat

Historical Season Ticket Data

For the past several seasons most men’s hockey season ticket relocation requests have been granted. However, some highly sought after areas of the Kohl Center for men’s hockey historically experience little to no attrition from one season to the next. One such example would be seats in row A of the 100 level, also known as “on the glass”. Please keep this in mind when participating in Badger Select for men’s hockey.

New Seat Change Process

Badger Select Replaces Ticket Order Form Seat Change Requests

The Wisconsin Athletic Department will no longer be reviewing write-in requests and making allocations based on donor rank and requests. Badger Select is now your portal to make these decisions. Requests do not carry over year to year.


At the conclusion of the Badger Select process, payment in full for new or additional season tickets is required to complete your order. Applicable contributions and season parking fees (if selected) will also be due at this time.
