Accoring to the article, (http://www.syracuse.com/crunch/index.ssf/2014/06/syracuse_crunch_will_host_utica_comets_in_syracuse _universitys_carrier_dome_on_n.html#incart_m-rpt-2) Oswego and Utica season ticket holders will be able to buy pre-sale tickets soon. Prices range from $20-50.

From the Oswego website:

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Oswego State men's ice hockey team has been included in a historic tripleheader of games known as the "Frozen Dome Classic," at Syracuse University's Carrier Dome on Sat., Nov. 22 which will be hosted by the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League (AHL). Oswego will play a contest against Utica College that afternoon with the Crunch to follow with a game against the Utica Comets. Also playing prior to those two games will be law enforcement agencies from both the Syracuse and Utica areas.

Purchasing a ticket will allow fans to see all the action that day. Prices for the tickets are as follows: $50, $30 and $20 (plus applicable facility and TM fees). A section of tickets have been blocked off for Oswego fans and will be made available at 10 a.m. on June 17. General public tickets will be available at ticketmaster.com at 10 a.m. on June 24.

"We are very thankful to the Syracuse Crunch and Mr. Dolgon for giving Oswego State the opportunity to partake in this historic event," said Lakers' head coach Ed Gosek. "It will be a honor to be a part of this day and to have another classic battle with Utica College."

The ice rink will be set up similarly to the Carrier Dome's basketball configuration. Using this layout, the renowned Carrier Dome can seat more than 30,000 fans. The Carrier Dome is well accustomed to hosting large crowds. Since 1983 the Dome has broken the NCAA's men's basketball on-campus attendance record 14 times, most recently when the Syracuse Orange hosted the Duke Blue Devils on Feb. 1, 2014, and 35,446 fans attended.

The Crunch and Comets will attempt to break the AHL's single-game indoor attendance record that was set on Jan. 18, 1997 as 20,672 fans watched as Carolina beat Kentucky 5-4 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C. That is the fourth-largest regular season crowd to view an AHL game as outdoor games take the first three spots, including the Crunch's 2-1 win over Binghamton on Feb. 20, 2010 at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, N.Y.

"Four years ago the Syracuse Crunch staged the first outdoor game in American Hockey League history, attended by a record-setting crowd," said Crunch owner Howard Dolgon. "On Nov. 22 we will once again make history by playing the first-ever professional hockey game in the iconic Carrier Dome, a facility that has hosted numerous major sporting and entertainment events. We greatly appreciate the partnership with Syracuse University and plan on doing everything we can to put on a first class show."

Please stay tuned over the coming months as more details become available. Updates can be found on the athletics website, on Twitter at @OswegoAthletics or by checking Facebook.

Does anyone think the game at the Dome will draw more than the
(a) Campus Center?
(b) Aud?

Seems a bit pricey.

Ought to outdraw both. There are people all over CNY who are partial, and I think Mike Montagna may be a draw for some Laker fans.

I think the day will get a large gate. They've certainly got 4 teams that should draw a lot of interest.

I'll go on record now saying the Utica/Oswego game has Atleast 5000 people there. Probably a good portion more than that.

The Comets/Crunch game should do really well too.

The novelty of this thing with the addition of "Dome Foam" will draw many as well. I can't imagine the students will make the drive, and pay the high ticket price though?

50.00 is the best ticket and you get two games, plus the "event" that is this.
Pretty good deal me thinks.

A question--would this count as an away game for both teams on their schedule? Game time someone has to be home.

Hell, I'm coming up for this. The hard part is a week earlier we honor the 50th anniversary of the hockey program, which was already going to be a big weekend. Wife may not like me taking trips up there two straight weekends.

I found it interesting that UC was not on the Oswego schedule until the opportunity for this game came up.....

I'm probably going to beg the wife to get tickets as an early anniversary/b-day present.

On 06/12, Marc Spaziani (Utica College Ticket Manager) sent out this email to STH.

Utica College hockey season ticket holders have the opportunity to purchase advance sale tickets to the Nov. 22 “Frozen Dome Classic” before tickets go on sale to the general public at 10:00 a.m. June 24.

Tickets range in price from $20 to $50 (plus applicable facility and Ticketmaster fees), and include admission to the UC and Oswego hockey game as well as the AHL game between the Syracuse Crunch and Utica Comets and a charity game between police and fire personnel from Syracuse and Utica. Single game tickets are not available. Discount ticket prices are available for groups of 15 or more people.

For advance sale ticket information, visit http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00004CBDE238DE5D. When the event page appears, it will have a window in which you can type in an Offer Code, and it will activate the page so you can select your seats and purchase tickets. The pre-sale Offer Code is *. If you do not see an Offer Code window, click “Got an Offer Code?”.

For additional information, contact the Syracuse Crunch ticket office at (315) 473- 4444.

*I've censored the offer code, as it probably should not be made available to everyone, just STH.
