If you know the prices for a school and are willing to share them it would be appreciated.

Data sought:
1. Season ticket price (cost per seat per game)
2. Discount for season tickets? Yes/No, if yes what is the discount
3. Number of season tickets if known
4. Student ticket prices
5. General admission ticket prices - adult
6. General admission ticket prices - child (ages if known)
7. Are games generally sold out? Yes/No
8. Capacity of rink
9. Are ticket prices the same for all games, or is there a reduced price say for an exhibition or a higher rate for say a tournament game
10. Other pertinent information

RPI's info on pricing: http://rpiathletics.com/sports/2010/7/9/GEN_0709104100.aspx

Capacity you'll be able to find on this site, for the most part. Just check out the listings for the individual schools. I'd recommend collegehockeystats.net to look at attendance for the games; they will also note if a game is a sellout, should USCHO's information not be accurate.

1. Ignoring the club room, tickets this year range from $750-$1050 per season. There are 21 home games this year, no exhibitions. 750/21 = 35.14 per game to 1050/21 = 50 per game
2. There are savings with season tickets relative to purchasing a single ticket to all games, but because games are priced at different levels I don't have time to calculate it.
3. Unknown. Probably 5,500-6,500 non-students?
4. $99 for first or second game of series thoughout year. So $198 for all games. There are bundles with football and basketball, but hockey is the one that sells out.
5. Depends on area of arena starting this year. Tickets range from $20-50 for the cheap Mariucci Classic. Tickets for premium games run $60-70. SRO range from $15-30 depending on game.
6. Under certain age does not need a ticket.
7. No. Close
8. 10,000
9. Many tiers, which mostly started this year

Here are some details for ULowell.
8. Capacity of rink (Mixed info on this. USCHO has it listed as 6,003 and Wikipedia has 6,496. In my opinion its probably closer to 6,500. The ice can be seen from the concourse in most areas of the arena, and they sell plenty of standing room tickets. You'll see box scores around 7,500 for popular games like against BC and BU. Standing Room tickets are not discounted (that I am aware))]

The official capacity for hockey is 6,003. It was 6496 when it opened, but with the renovations a few years ago, it was lowered.

Thanks for the info. I've fixed my earlier post. I didn't realize they could fit that many standing room when they report 7,000+ in attendance.

4. Student ticket prices $10.50, $17.50 or $22.50, but students can buy a "sports pass" which I think gets them a free ticket to each game (I'll let a student or more recent grad comment)

6. General admission ticket prices - child (ages if known) Same

5. General admission ticket prices - adult
20 and 22 for bench and chairback
6. General admission ticket prices - child (ages if known)
Family section counts as 10 for everyone, each game, season ticket package or not.

Michigan game yes, and usually at least one weekend of each conference series due to a promotion.
8. Capacity of rink
~6500, renovations reduced it this year.

3. Number of season tickets if known The school has sold right around 6,300 season tickets

4. Student ticket prices Student admission is FREE at UNO (750 seats allotted to this) Edit: this ACTUALLY ended up being 830 seats.

6. General admission ticket prices - child (ages if known) To the best of my knowledge, there are no such "discounts" available. Edit: New Policy on this just announced. Children under 2 can be ticketless but must sit on ticketholder's lap. Children 2 and above must have own ticket.

7. Are games generally sold out? Yes/No Every home game UNO plays this season will be announced as a sell out of at least 7,898.

8. Capacity of rink 7,500 fixed seats and, supposedly, 300 SRO seat available for each game. The school has yet to say how SRO can be obtained. Edit: The school is holding off on this until they work the "bugs" out of the building and get the Fire Marshall's blessing for a specific number. And, the final seating capacity of the building, when all was said and done, ended up being 7,898.

9. Are ticket prices the same for all games, or is there a reduced price say for an exhibition or a higher rate for say a tournament game There is no premium or discount for these games.

10. Other pertinent information Suite prices vary from $40,000.00 to $50,000.00 per year with a 5 year commitment being the minimum for these. There are a dozen fixed seats in each suite, 4 bar rail seats, and 4 SRO seat tickets that come with each suite per game. General seating is 20" wide padded seating in the arena. Seats are 21" wide in the club section. Alcohol is served throughout out the arena. Parking is free (more than 2,400 parking lot stalls within 5 minutes of the arena) and more in adjacent Aksarben Village. The school believes they will only be dealing with 1,800-2,000 vehicles or so on a nightly basis. There are handicapped seating areas in the building. Students have their own, dedicated, entrance. The arena opens 1 hour before game time.
