Madison, WI – The Madison Capitols, proud members of the United States Hockey League, are set to unveil their brand new renovations during their home opening weekend on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13.
A year long process for the Capitols began last fall at Bob Suter’s Capitol Ice Arena in Middleton. The arena has undergone a $2 million overhaul to upgrade amenities, improve fan experience, and elevate the Capitols program.
“We’re very fortunate to have an ownership group that has the faith in us to build this team into a champion both on and off the ice,” says team president Andrew Joudrey. “We’ve spent the past year making improvements to the arena, and we’re more than excited to show them off this upcoming weekend.”
The Capitols held an open house on October 3rd, but this will be the first time the new amenities will be used. Renovations include, but are not limited to, a new 300 person mezzanine beer garden, seven brand new luxury suites, new and improved seating in the bowl, and a video board across from the beer garden.
Madison began their 2018-19 campaign with four straight games on the road before their triumphant return to Cap Ice this upcoming weekend.
“We had a rough start, but a big win for our first of the season against Team USA this past Saturday,” says head coach Garrett Suter. “Coming home to play will be something else. The renovations are going to help the atmosphere, and make it one of the hardest arenas for visitors in the league. Our guys are truly in for a treat.”
The Capitols open their home schedule against the Chicago Steel at 7:05 pm on Friday before turning around to play the Central Illinois Flying Aces on Saturday at 7:05 pm.
