Prospective Men's Hockey Season Ticket Holders

4 key points for Prospective Season Ticket Holders in Men’s Hockey
  1. Patrons looking to purchase new season tickets, must contact that Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office by June 25th, to place a request for season tickets to participate in Badger Select.
  2. While a donation is not required to participate in Badger Select, consider becoming a donor to Wisconsin Athletics at a level of $50 or more by June 25th.
  3. After you have placed a season ticket request, you will then be issued a personalized selection date and time for you to log onto Badger Select and select the best available seats at the time of your selection.
  4. Your personalized selection date and time is based on Badger Select rank: 2021 Annual Giving Level and Badger Select priority points as of December 31, 2017 plus 2018-2021 priority points accrued from non-deductible donations, followed by non-donors. The higher your Badger Select rank, the sooner in each sport’s selection process you will select.

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 is based on 2021 Annual Giving Level and Badger Select priority points. Badger Select priority points include: points as of December 31st, 2017 plus 2018–2021 priority points accrued from non–deductible donations. Non–deductible donations include those associated with priority seating and Badger Select seating contributions.

For Badger Select Rank, 100% deductible donations made in 2018–2021 will NOT be allocated towards Badger Select priority points. 100% deductible gifts include those to sport specific funds, endowed scholarships, or capital projects. (Please note Badger Select rank is different from Donor Rank.)

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.

Seat Change Process

Badger Select Replaces Ticket Order Form Seat Change Requests

The Wisconsin Athletic Department no longer reviews 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.

Accessible and Premium Seating

Accessible seating and premium seating (Kohl Center suites and Nicholas Club seats) are not a part of Badger Select. For more information regarding accessible seating, please contact the Athletic Ticket Office at (608) 262-1440. For more information regarding Kohl Center premium seating, please contact the Athletic Development Office at (608) 262-1000.
