The Ohio State Department of Athletics continues to work with state and local health officials on protocols and adjustments for hosting events during the pandemic.

The decision was made that family members of the players and coaching staffs of teams competing this fall will no longer be permitted into any university sporting event.

The decision not to allow families at football games will be reevaluated prior to Ohio State’s final home football game of the season, Dec. 12 against the University of Michigan. This decision aligns with the Columbus Department of Health’s stay at home advisory, which was issued November 18th.


Single game tickets typically go on sale in July – exact date TBD.  Subject to availability, single game tickets may be purchased online at, on the Ticketmaster app for iOS or Android, or in person at the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office in the Schottenstein Center.

This process aims to integrate athletics giving, university giving, and continuous years of season ticket purchases for an equitable priority order by which season tickets will be allocated. Each account holder will be assigned an appointment time (seat selection window) based upon season ticket holder qualification and priority point ranking as shown below.

Public Seat Selection Process


Ohio State University adheres to the Big Ten Conference policy of requiring that all guests, regardless of age, must present a valid ticket for entrance into football, men’s basketball, and men’s ice hockey games.

Fans wishing to bring small children (under the age of 2) to any of these events may purchase a lap ticket at a discounted rate for their infant. This ticket will allow the infant to enter the venue, but that child must sit on their parent/guardian’s lap. If a seat must be occupied by the child and/or a carrier, then a regular ticket must be purchased.

  • Lap tickets are only available on game/event day and can be purchased at the ticket office at the venue in which the event is being held
  • Only children UNDER age 2 are eligible for the lap ticket discount
  • This lap ticket policy only applies to home contests in football, men’s basketball, and men’s ice hockey

Lap Tickets for home football games are $10 each and can be purchased at the NW corner of Ohio Stadium, at Gate 5, on the day of the event.
