The United States Hockey League on Monday (11/25/19) announced that the Green Bay Gamblers will play the Chicago Steel outside at Cotton Bowl® Stadium in Dallas, Texas on Friday,
January 3, 2020. The game is in conjunction with the inaugural USHL Frosty Cup, a showcase centered around the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® at Cotton Bowl® Stadium.
“We are excited to partner with the Dallas Stars to put together the first ever USHL Frosty Cup,” said USHL Commissioner Tom Garrity. “Not only will this be a fantastic event for the teams, players and fans involved, but it also gives fans in the area a chance to see some of the NHL stars of tomorrow. Being able to showcase the high level of talent the USHL has, on the same ice as the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, at a historic venue like Cotton Bowl® Stadium, is an amazing opportunity.”
As part of the Frosty Cup, Green Bay and Chicago will play a pair of games on back-to-back nights. The first game will be played indoors at Comerica Center in Frisco, Texas (7:30 PM), before the team’s head outside to Cotton Bowl® Stadium the following evening (5:00 PM).
