MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - For the first time in 595 days, the Wisconsin Badgers Men’s Hockey team will be greeted by fans on Friday on their home ice at the Kohl Center.

The season’s first game is 7p.m. Friday against Michigan Tech, who the Badgers will also play Saturday.

Fans attending the game can expect a similar experience and changes to those seen at volleyball and football games.

Tickets will be contactless, and fans will scan themselves in via phone or printed ticket. Concessions will be cashless, just like at other UW-Madison venues. There are new metal detectors, which do not require the removal of keys or phones in the hopes of keeping lines moving quickly. Masks are required inside the arena.

For the entire hockey schedule or tickets, you can head over to the UWBadgers website.
