Red Hot Hockey, one of the NCAA’s premier hockey events between long-time rivals Boston University and Cornell, returns for a seventh edition to Madison Square Garden this Thanksgiving weekend.
Tickets are on sale now through Cornell’s site, BigRedTix.com. Fans are able to choose a section and seats will be assigned best available at time of purchase by the Cornell Athletic Ticketing Office. Many sections are sold out, but several great seats are still available! Red Hot Hockey has taken place in front of sell-out crowds on four occasions and the biennial tilt for the Kelley-Harkness Cup has become the premier alumni event for the schools’ hockey-crazed fan bases. The puck drops on the 2019 installment at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30.
“Red Hot Hockey has become one of the great nights on the Madison Square Garden calendar and we are excited for the return of Boston University and Cornell University on November 30th,” said Joel Fisher, executive vice president, MSG Marquee Events. “This tremendous college hockey rivalry is regularly sold out, and we’re looking forward to another great crowd at ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena’.”
“For our players to have the opportunity to represent the university and play in front of such a supportive alumni base is one of the most prideful moments that I have as a head coach,” Cornell head coach and alumnus Mike Schafer said. “It’s one of college hockey’s premier events, and it has really reignited our rivalry with BU.”
