Please join us for the UND/SCSU pre-game social, an annual event which provides an opportunity for fans of the University of North Dakota and St. Cloud State University to gather, celebrate the great sport of hockey, and view the UND/SCSU Challenge Cup, a traveling trophy which is presented to the team which collects more points in the four regular-season games between the schools. The teams split a November series in St. Cloud, so the Challenge Cup is on the line at the end of January.
This event will be held on Saturday, January 26th from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Muddy Rivers Bar and Grill (inside the GuestHouse Inn and Suites) in downtown Grand Forks. Muddy Rivers is smoke-free, and the event is free and open to the public (due to the venue, guests must be 21 years of age or older). A free appetizer bar will be available, and a hockey bus will take fans to Ralph Engelstad Arena and back again after the game.
SiouxSports.com is the title sponsor for the event in Grand Forks, while the Center Ice Club (the official hockey booster organization for the St. Cloud State University Huskies) hosts the social in St. Cloud every year.
Other sponsors include:
Happy Joe’s Pizza
Muddy Rivers Bar and Grill
Nature’s Country Store
Ralph Engelstad Arena
University of North Dakota Bookstore
Fans of both teams enjoy the camaraderie at these social events and regularly comment that the connection between the two fan bases is among the best in college hockey.
Mark your calendars and join us for this event!
