The Pepsi Center will host next year's Frozen Four.
This historic development marks the first time in the history of collegiate hockey that the regional and Frozen Four will be hosted in the same venue in back-to-back years. It also marks the first time Pepsi Center will host a collegiate hockey event. The NCAA Frozen Four returns to Denver in 2008 for the first time since 1976 when legendary coach Herb Brooks led Minnesota to the NCAA title at DU Arena. Both events will be held at the Pepsi Center, which seats 18,007.

"We are thrilled to welcome collegiate hockey to Pepsi Center for the first time," said Dave Jolette, vice president and general manager of the Pepsi Center. "It is only fitting that a state with such hockey tradition has the chance to showcase the sport at this level in one of the region's premier facilities."

Tickets for the 2007 NCAA West Regional are on sale now at the Pepsi Center Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets are also available online at, by phone at 303.830.TIXS or 719.520.9090.
