Football Seat Selection Step-by-Step Process

Log in

Login to your Ohio State Buckeyes Account using your email address on file with the Athletics Ticket Office and password. If you have never logged in before or have forgotten your password, please click Forgot Password and an email will be sent to reset the password.

If you have a seat selection window scheduled in your account, a message will pop up once you log in and direct you to the Preview or Seat Selection process. **The countdown is how much time is left in the Seat Selection Process. If your window has not opened yet, you can access the Preview Mode by clicking “Preview Open Seats”.

Please Note: You can also access the Preview or Seat Selection process by clicking “Select Seats” from the Login or Dashboard pages.

Select Seats

Once clicking “Select Seats”, all seats eligible for the seat selection process will appear here. Click the “Select Seats” button and then Next >.

**If your Seat Selection Window has not opened yet, clicking “Select Seats” on this screen will take you to the inventory preview screen.  From the preview, you’ll be able to view seats that are currently available, but you won’t be able to add any seats to your cart until your Seat Selection window opens.

*Seats you see as available in Preview Mode may not still be available when your Seat Selection window opens.

Virtual Venue

The Ohio State Football Virtual Venue™ will then appear.

The Ohio State Football Virtual Venue™ Indicates available sections for you to select. The navigator on the top left will allow you to select different aerial views of Ohio Stadium.

If you’d like to view only the lower level of the stadium to show seat availability in B-Deck, select the “Lower Level” option that is located under “Select your Level”.

Hovering over a section will show you a view from that area of the stadium.  Click on a section you are interested in to view specific seat availability within that section.

Once you have selected a section, any seats that are green are available for you to select.

Please Note: other customers will be looking for seats at the same time you are, so available inventory may change quickly.

View from the Seat

Hovering over a seat will provide you a view from that area of the stadium.  Please keep in mind that this may not be the exact view from those seats. You can click in and out of as many sections/seats as you would like before choosing.  You can also compare seats, if you would like to by clicking on the “Compare Seat” button on the bottom left. You will then need to click the “Back” button on the top left corner of your screen to go back into the virtual venue and click another pair of seats and add them to your Compare Seats options.

Hints for selecting and holding seats:

  • You cannot leave single seats
  • If you need assistance selecting seats, or if you require wheelchair accessible seating, contact the Ohio State Athletic Ticket Office via phone at 1-800-GOBUCKS during your seat selection window to make your selection.

Add to Cart

Once you have found seats you wish to select, click “Add to Cart”, select your cart from the top right corner, and hit “Continue”.

IMPORTANT: Your seats have not been held for you until you click “Proceed to Checkout” on the next screen and proceed to the next screen! Seats will be released from your cart after 10 minutes.

Review Order

The Review your Order page will allow you to verify your new seat location. Once you’ve confirmed this information, click Checkout.

Please Note: The dollar amount under “New Seats” will reflect the price of your new seats minus the any payments that have already been applied. The dollar amount under “Current Seats” will reflect the original price of your seats prior to seat selection.
