Welcome back to campus, we hope you had a great summer! Thanks for signing up for your Hockey Student Season Tickets and making the student section at Yost Ice Arena the best in college hockey! The season will be here before you know it, the first game is Tuesday, October 9 vs. Windsor at 7:35 p.m. and with that in mind, we wanted to share with you some important news, dates and updates to your season tickets for this season:New and most importantly this year is the fact that your Michigan Hockey Tickets will be on your MCards. Similar to the basketball student ticketing process, all hockey Student Tickets will be first come, first serve seating in the student sections (no pre-reserved seating or printed season tickets will be used). This change was made to make it more convenient for you, and to create an early exciting atmosphere at Yost. Just show up to the games where you will swipe your MCard and ticket takers will give you a ticket voucher for a student section seat. Make sure to get there early to get the best seats!With the tickets on your MCard, you can now easily and electronically transfer your tickets to someone else if you're unable to make a game. Use of the ticket is free for other UM students (MCard student ID must be presented with ticket at game), and if you transfer your ticket to a non-student they must pay a $20 validation fee at Yost to gain admittance. Transferred tickets will be emailed to the recipient as a pdf Print at Home ticket. Transfer instructions will be sent to you in late September.Yost Ice Arena has been renovated!
