Six home contests and five games versus programs that played in last year’s NCAA Tournament highlight the 2019 Ohio State men’s lacrosse schedule, head coach Nick Myers announced today.
Prices are $42 for the general public, $27 for youth (6-17 years old) and seniors (62 years old and up). Season ticket holder incentives include:
• A 20 percent savings (six games for $42)
• Guaranteed seats for anticipated sell outs indoors vs. Cleveland State, Boston and Bucknell
• Eligibility to purchase suites at Ohio Stadium
• Easy entry (skip the lines)
“We’re very excited about the schedule we’ve put together this year. The lacrosse community in Columbus and beyond has shown us tremendous support over the years and we know that will continue in 2019. As always, we have a great non-conference slate to complement what will be a very challenging Big Ten Conference schedule. It will certainly prepare us well as we chase the goals that we have in front of us.” | Head coach Nick Myers
