This New Year’s Day the Blackhawks and Redwings face off in Wrigley Field for the NHL’s 2009 Winter Classic. Hockey outside at Wrigley field featuring two of the “Original Six” NHL teams. That is classic.
Season ticket holders and "NHL Winter Classic partners" get a first crack at seats. After that, how tickets will be distributed to the rest of the public is going to be left up to a lottery.
Registering at www.chicagoblackhawks.com between now and 10:59 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 28, 2008 enters you in a drawing for the opportunity to buy tickets. You can enter only once and the league hasn’t said how many tickets a lottery winner will be allowed to buy.
I’ve signed up. Now I expect my dad, sister, brother, brother-in-law, and wife to sign up so we can pool our resources and increase our chances of landing some tickets.
