Historical Season Ticket Data

For the past several seasons, most men's hockey season ticket holders have been able to find desirable seats. 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.


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.
