So, you too would like to go the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park, a matchup between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers that promises to be the most exciting – and most frigid – event of the entire hockey season? Well, today the NHL announced how you can be one of the spectators freezing their derrières off at the January 1st game.
The opportunity to purchase tickets to the match will be determined by a random lottery open to the general public. Registration for the drawing, which is free, will take place online at the NHL’s Winter Classic website and begin at noon (EDT) on Tuesday, September 15, running until 11:59 a.m. on Monday, October 5.
If you are one of those lucky enough to be selected, you will be notified by October 20 of your opportunity to purchase a pair of tickets, which will range in cost from $50 to $300.
For some, Christmas will come early this year. For others – the ones who will be watching the Classic at home or in a restaurant – I urge you to take solace in the fact that you will not be frostbitten on January 2nd.
To stay updated with the latest news on the Winter Classic, you can join the mailing list at the Winter Classic website or continue visiting Sports of Boston, the premier blog for all Boston sports news and updates.
Note: Bruins and Flyers season-ticket holders will be notified how to purchase their tickets later this month.
