Public Single Game Tickets
Single game ticket sales will begin in summer, including traditional pre-sale opportunities for Alumni Association members. As an alternative, season ticket holders who cannot attend a game may post them for re-sale on Buckeyes Ticket Exchange where the seller sets the asking price. Original tickets are not valid once they are sold.

Purchasing Ohio State Football season tickets has never been easier. The new and simplified Buckeye Club model provides season ticket holders with more flexibility in accessing season tickets and parking. Beginning with the 2022 season, the current annual giving model will be replaced with the Per-Seat Contribution (PSC) model whereby season ticket holders pay an annual PSC to the Buckeye Club in order to qualify for season tickets. Under the new model, the stadium is divided into six pricing zones – each with a different PSC (based on location) and ticket cost. Season tickets start at $559/ticket plus any applicable per seat contributions

Offering greater convenience and safety, fans can access their ticket online, transfer to family and friends, utilize Buckeyes TicketExchange, or donate tickets to charity.
