The 2022-23 University of North Dakota (UND) men’s hockey season is set to begin tonight, as the team hosts Manitoba at Ralph Engelstad Arena for an exhibition contest starting at 6:07 p.m.

With this season being the 22nd season of UND hockey at Ralph Engelstad Arena, there will be new features that fans can experience for the upcoming season.

New features that will be available throughout the arena are the following:

The first is digital ticketing, giving fans the ability to sell, transfer, or donate their digital hockey tickets. For the forwarding steps, fans can go to theralph.com/events/ticket-info.

Concessions will feature Anheuser-Busch Family of Brands where they will serve products such as Bud Light, Budweiser, Busch Light, Michelob Ultra, Corona, Big Wave, Summit, and the 1883 Ale. The 1883 Ale is a new craft beer of the University of North Dakota, celebrating the year UND was founded.

On Saturday home games, Ralph Engelstad Arena will give fans a chance to split a minimum $20,000 jackpot. There will be a variety of 50/50 kiosks inside the arena where fans can purchase tickets.

In the upper-level concourse outside of section 309, there will be the Sioux Shop “Up Top,” which will offer shopping that will include many fan favorite items.

The Sioux Shop Authentics FanZones Customization Kiosk will allow fans to enter their jersey customization information on a screen, where they will also see a live preview of the information entered.

Sky’s Lounge will be a new bar on the suite level atrium area and will serve mixed cocktails and beer for suite owners and guests in attendance.

The UND North Dakota Gameday App will be available on mobile devices, where fans can play interactive games with a chance to win prizes. The app will also include scores, game notes, schedule, and other offers.

UND students who attend games will be able to purchase concessions from a select menu where they will receive a discounted rate at the Wishbone Kitchen concession stand, located outside of section 106.

Free water bottle filling stations will be available on both the main and upper concourses outside of sections 106 and 306. Fans will be able to bring empty water bottles into the arena on game nights to fill.

Lastly, there will be a Lactation Suite available outside of section 107 that will serve as a breastfeeding station.
