A great way to show your Mav Spirit is going to events. The men’s hockey team at Minnesota State University, Mankato, started off its 50th season by hosting Boston University Terriers. The Mavericks beat the Terriers4-3 and 5-3, sweeping the opening weekend. They enter the season as defending WCHA (Western Collegiate Hockey Association) Champions and have an all-time record of 887-645-153. (.572).
If you are interested in going to the games and supporting your University, make sure to get some tickets. The tickets are free and can be obtained in the CSU every Wednesday during home game weeks from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Any remaining tickets are taken back to MF 135 (Myers Field House) until 5 p.m. and can be picked up by any student and don’t forget that the student section most commonly known as the Herd is where you can get riled up with fellow Mavericks.
You can also register for the Maverick Fast Pass Program for $30. It is designed for interested students to get hockey passes for every home game including premium games. This way students avoid the distribution lines, but they are limited, so make sure you register HERE. After registering, students can pick up their tickets in the athletic office during business hours as long as they show their MavCard and they come in on Monday or Tuesday on the week of the game before the general tickets are distributed.
One of the premium games is happening on Nov. 3 when the Mavericks play host to the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers.
