TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The road to college hockey's Frozen Four tournament goes through downtown Toledo's Huntington Center.

Tickets are now on sale for regional semi-final games the weekend of March 30th.

Bowling Green State University is the NCAA host school.

Just like college basketball's March Madness, the four teams participating will not be known until a week before the tournament, but it's expected they'll be within driving distance of Toledo.

"There's a chance we get Miami of Ohio," said Steve Miller of the Huntington Center. "Bowling Green is our host school. They could participate. Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame. Great opportunity to get a great fan base from a close distance."

Toledo is one of four semi-final sites. The Visitor's Bureau expects 4,000 fans to occupy 225 hotel rooms for the games.

This is the second time officials at Huntington Center have made a pitch for the tournament.

"It's a combination of things," Miller explained. "It's the facility, volunteers in the community, hotels and location. And Toledo as a location makes a huge difference drawing people from the Midwest."

Tickets are $75 for three games. There will be two semi-final games on Saturday. The two winners face each other in a Sunday championship game. That winner advances to Pittsburgh for the Frozen Four tournament.
