NCAA Tournament Ticket Information

For the Ohio State NCAA First- and Second-Round games, a limited number of tickets will be made available for purchase to Ohio State men’s basketball season ticket holders based on season ticket priority level, as well as to student ticket holders via a random drawing through the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office.

The ticket request periods will begin Sunday after the selection show for all full season ticket holders, including faculty and staff, and for Ohio State students who purchased student tickets. All requests for the first and second rounds must be submitted by 10 a.m. Tuesday to be considered.

Ticket requests will be accepted online only. All eligible ticket holders will receive detailed instructions Sunday night via email to the address on record in their ticket account. These instructions will include ticket prices, request instructions and mobile ticket information.

Those with questions may contact the Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-GO-BUCKS. Because of the limited number of tickets received from the NCAA for the first and second rounds, no tickets will be made available to the general public during the initial request period.
