Played annually on New Year's Day, the Winter Classic brings the game of hockey back to where it all began: outdoors. It's a unique and exciting experience for every fan who buys Winter Classic tickets to see a game unlike any other.
The first Winter Classic took place at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, New York. Nearly 72,000 fans attended the game, which at the time was NHL record for attendance. Since then, the popularity of the game has taken off with fans waiting every year to see which stadium the game will take place. Some of the iconic stadiums that have hosted the Winter Classic before include Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Heinz Field and Citizens Bank Park. Also among those venues was Michigan Stadium, which in 2014 broke the NHL attendance record with more than 105,000 fans buying tickets.
