ND-Michigan hockey game at ND Stadium delayed 1 hour for ice quality

By  | 

NOTRE DAME, Ind. (WNDU) – The Let's Take this Outside hockey game Saturday between Notre Dame and Michigan at Notre Dame Stadium has been delayed one hour in the hopes of improving player safety.

The game will now start at 4:30 p.m., the University of Notre Dame announced Friday afternoon. It was originally slated to begin at 3:30 p.m.

Forecasts predict sunny conditions and warmer-than-usual temperatures, which could have detrimental effects on ice quality.

As a result of the puck drop time change, premium doors will open at 2:30 p.m., while general gates are scheduled to open at 3:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, if you're planning on going to the hockey game, keep in mind that parking could be an issue because the university is hosting a rare doubleheader at Notre Dame Stadium and Purcell Pavilion, with the men's basketball team hosting Syracuse.

Those attending games are strongly encouraged to buy parking in advance to secure a spot in their preferred lot.

You can purchase parking for $15 in the bookstore, library, Innovation Park, Innovation Park grass and IU Medical School lots. Joyce and stadium lot parking passes can be purchased for $20.

Meanwhile, complimentary parking is available in the white field lot, and all fans with an ADA placard can park for free in the Bulla lot.

All parking lots will open at 9 a.m.
