Madison Outdoor Tickets are Slow

     This outdoor college doubleheader update came Wednesday from Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal:

Tickets for the Camp Randall Hockey Classic continue to move slowly — about 25,000 have been sold — but the inaugural event scheduled for Feb. 6, 2010 made progress on one front Wednesday.

Faceoff times were set for the first outdoor games at Camp Randall. The Wisconsin women’s team faces Bemidji State at 2 p.m. The Wisconsin men’s team plays Michigan at 5 p.m.

General admission tickets are on sale through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office at $25 each. Specific group tickets are $15.

The CRC was put together with the idea of setting a world record for attendance at an outdoor hockey game. It will take 75,000 to pull off the feat.

Another goal of the Classic is to make a profit for Wisconsin Athletics. According to athletic director Barry Alvarez, 40,000 tickets need to be sold to break even.
