Red Sox Planning Another Frozen Fenway
CHN Staff Report
The Fenway Sports Group and the Boston Red Sox are in the planning process of another "Frozen Fenway" event, with the target of playing more hockey games at Fenway Park next winter.
"We are deep into the planning phase for the possibility of a return of Frozen Fenway in 2014," said Red Sox executive vice president and chief operating officer, Sam Kennedy. "We will need to secure proper city approvals and complete our negotiations with the many teams who are interested in competing before we will have any formal announcement."
In 2010, in combination with the NHL's Winter Classic, Fenway Park hosted its first Frozen Fenway series, with Boston University beating Boston College, 3-2. New Hampshire and Northeastern played a women's game before the Eagles and Terriers.
Last winter, Maine played UNH and UMass squared off with Vermont. The Eagles also played Northeastern in a men's game the following week, and Union and Harvard squared off as well.
In both years, the games were part of a multi-week event in which the rink was open for public skates as well as high school games.
