The University of Michigan’s “Big House” in Ann Arbor will host the
NHL’s Winter Classic between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the
Detroit Red Wings, on Jan. 1, 2014.
“The history of the teams’ cross-border rivalry, the nobility of ‘The
Big House’ and the growing tradition of the NHL Winter Classic
will raise the anticipation for this event to new heights,” said NHL
commissioner Gary Bettman when he announced the game.
The “Big House”, the University of Michigan’s stadium in Ann Arbor
holds more than 100,000 people and is expected to set a record for
attendance. “We are delighted to offer our fans a spectacle at which
the energy will be unmatched and the demand for tickets will be
unprecedented,” said Bettman.
Demand for hotel rooms will be equally high. Make sure to check out
