COLUMBUS — A sold-out Horseshoe this fall is looking more and more likely for Ohio State.
The Buckeyes announced that beginning Tuesday, invoicing starts for season-ticket holders looking to renew, including those who had fund roll over from this past season. Season ticket deposits for this season are also now being accepted.
This is all part of a larger plan to return to full capacity at Ohio Stadium this season. In partnership with local health officials and the Columbus Public Health department, the Buckeyes will create plan to follow safety protocols while also allowing fans back into the Horseshoe.
“Our hope is that we are at full capacity for our football games,” athletic director Gene Smith said in the release. “We will continue to work with our university partners and with Columbus Public Health on all of our safety protocols, including strongly encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated. You’ll continue to hear that message of support for vaccinations a lot from our department, the university and Columbus Public Health because it is a key component to having a full stadium in the fall.”
Starting on Wednesday, staff and faculty at Ohio State will be able to purchase season tickets. And students can start buying tickets to games this season the week of June 21. The student sale will run from June 21 through June 24.
In early August the athletic department is planning to reveal a four-game flex-ticket plan and a three-game mini-ticket plan. More information on the opportunities is expected to be announced in July.
Single-game tickets will begin to go on sale in mid-August, with traditional presale for Varsity O and alumni association members.
Ohio State will host games at the Horseshoe this fall against Oregon, Tulsa, Akron, Maryland, Penn State, Purdue and Michigan State.
The Buckeyes can now look forward to playing in front of their fans again.
