The three-year wait to see the Gophers and North Dakota on the same ice again has put a premium on tickets for this weekend’s regular-season series at Mariucci Arena.
University officials are expecting a sellout and ticket prices confirm the high demand to see the old rivalry renewed. The limited number of single tickets available through the university start at $90 for standing room only. Seats range from $95-$115.
On the secondary market, tickets are cheaper, but still well above the average price for any other game. Tickets on StubHub range from $63 to $179. Ticket King prices range from $79 to $180.
Saturday’s tickets range from $89 to $459. StubHub has a few standing room tickets for Saturday at $50.
The Gophers last played in the regular season in 2012-2013 as WCHA rivals. They played in the Frozen Four semifinal in 2013-2014.
Brent Houk at the university ticket office said that 1,800 tickets were made available to non-season-ticket holders in a package deal starting at $70. The remaining tickets went on sale in mid-September and sold for $100. The consecutive seats sold out the first day.
Tickets for the Gophers' next home series at Mariucci Arena against in-state rival Minnesota State are selling for $23 on StubHub.
Gophers football tickets for this weekend are available starting at $27. Tickets to the Gophers men’s basketball exhibition start at $6.
