A New Model for Success

“The modernization of the Buckeye Club benefits our current season ticket holders by providing more affordable price options, greater selection in seat locations and no restriction on the number of tickets purchased.  For the first time in decades, season tickets will be available to fans with no annual contribution so that more fans can share in the pageantry of Ohio State football and experience the thrill of Ohio Stadium.”

Eugene D. Smith
Senior Vice President & Wolfe Foundation Endowed Athletics Director


Over the past 10 years, the Department of Athletics has examined and implemented several enhancements to the current seating model in an effort to improve the overall customer experience for season ticket holders. Looking to modernize our current system, we analyzed our annual giving program, ticket pricing and parking options to create a model that would provide season ticket holders with the greatest advantages. This new and simplified 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. In addition, we will also be implementing an online Parking Lot Selection Process.  For the first time, season parking pass holders will now have the ability to select the parking lot of their choice, based on priority ranking and availability.

Many of your questions may be answered in our FAQ section, but if not, please contact the Buckeye Club via email at buckeyeclub@osu.edu or by phone at (614) 292-9908 or the Athletics Ticket Office via email at athletic.tix@osu.edu or by phone at 1-800-GO-BUCKS. Please note that we are working remotely until further notice. Staff are available via phone and email Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm to answer any questions that you may have.

Our success would not be possible without your generosity. Thank you for your continued support of The Ohio State University.

Go Buckeyes!


Per-Seat Contribution & Ticket Pricing

What is a per-seat contribution?

The per-seat contribution (PSC) is the minimum amount per seat that is required to purchase tickets in designated sections (Zone 1 – Zone 5). With the shift to this new model not all sections in Ohio Stadium will require a per-seat contribution (Zone 6). In these sections only the cost of the season tickets will be required.

All per-seat contributions will go to the Buckeye Club to pay for the grant-in-aid for student-athlete scholarships.

What is the Buckeye Club?

The Buckeye Club is the annual giving program of The Ohio State University Department of Athletics. Contributions to the Buckeye Club are used to cover the grant-in-aid costs to our student-athletes, which encompasses tuition, books and room and board. In 2020, the Department of Athletics transferred over $29 million to the university to cover the grant-in-aid costs of our student-athletes.

The Department of Athletics is entirely self-supporting and provides over 1,000 student-athletes participating in 36 sports an unparalleled experience to help achieve their academic and athletic goals. Your generous support in helping to cover those grant-in-aid costs is vital to the success of the current student-athletes while laying the foundation for future Buckeyes.


“The new Buckeye Club model provides a more cost effective approach for our donors to purchase season tickets, offers more enhanced benefits while allowing them to continue their support of the university.”

Senior Vice President for Advancement
President, The Ohio State University Foundation

Giving Structure / Priority Points

The modernized Buckeye Club giving structure will include three lifetime Athletics giving levels and eight annual giving levels.

  • The lifetime giving levels include only giving to Athletics (excluding planned giving and ticket/parking money).
  • The annual giving levels include all giving to Buckeye Club, per-seat contributions, Athletics pledge payments ($100k overall pledges or more) and football premium seat payments (excluding planned giving and ticket/parking money).

This structure will be used for priority to determine access to seating, parking, away and postseason tickets.

Priority:

  • Priority is determined through a combination of annual and lifetime giving to Athletics.
  • The lifetime giving levels include only giving to Athletics (excluding planned giving and ticket/parking money).
  • The annual giving levels include all giving to Buckeye Club, per-seat contributions, Athletics pledge payments ($100k overall pledges or more) and football premium seat payments (excluding planned giving and ticket/parking money).
  • Priority is first determined by Athletics giving level and then priority points within each level. Donors within each giving level are ranked based on their priority points.
  • For example, donors at the Pay Forward Society will receive first priority followed by Director’s Level, Excellence Level, Hall of Fame Level and on down.
  • Priority will be used for when selecting season tickets, season parking, away and post season ticket allocation.


Priority Points:

The deadline to determine your Athletics giving level and receive priority points for the 2022 season will be March 1, 2022.

The Athletics giving level and priority points deadline will shift from Dec. 31 of each year to March 1.

Per-Seat Contribution Scenarios

Joe Buckeye and Jessica Buckeye are both season ticket holders:

Joe Buckeye gives $400 to the Buckeye Club to qualify for his four season tickets in Zone 5 and has a total of 500 priority points.

    • 4 x $100 (per-seat contribution) = $400
    • Based on his annual giving of $400, Joe is at the Horseshoe giving level.
    • Joe is ranked with all other donors at the Horseshoe giving level, based on his 500 priority points.
    • Horseshoe level donors have priority after all other giving levels.
    • IF Joe gave an additional $100 gift to reach $500 in total giving, his priority giving level would now be at the Scarlet giving level. His rank would now be based on his priority points among all other donors at the Scarlet giving level.

Jessica Buckeye has two season tickets in Zone 2 and a non-proximity parking pass (total $3,000 contribution requirement to the Buckeye Club) and has a total of 300 priority points.

    • 2 x $1,000 (per-seat contribution) = $2,000
    • Additional $1,000 gift to reach total $3,000 in annual giving to qualify for non-proximity parking.
    • Jessica is now at the B1G Champions giving level.
    • Jessica is ranked with all other donors at the B1G Champions giving level, based on her priority points.

Even though Jessica has fewer priority points than Joe Buckeye (300pts vs 500pts), she is at a higher giving level (B1G Champions – $3,000 vs Horseshoe – $400), Jessica’s priority rank is higher than Joe’s.

Jennifer Buckeye has four season tickets in Zone 1 and a premier parking pass (total $6,000 to the Buckeye Club).

    • 4 x $1,500 (per-seat contribution) = $6,000

    • Jennifer is at the National Champions giving level.
    • Jennifer is ranked with all other donors at the National Champions giving level, based on her priority points.
    • When her parking selection window opens, she can select the lot of her choice, based on availability.

Parking

Lot Selection Process

  • Beginning with the 2022 season, all season parking pass holders will receive a selection window and will need to select their parking lot through an online selection process.  Individual space assignments outside of the RV lots will still be determined by parking staff upon arrival to the lot on game day, but you will select the lot(s) you wish to park in.
  • When your selection window opens, you will select the parking lot of your choice, based on availability and what you are eligible to purchase.
  • The process will work very similarly to the Seat Selection Process except that you will be selecting your parking lot and not an individual parking space.
  • All current suite and loge parking passes will be automatically allocated into their current lots and will not need to be selected during the parking lot selection.
  • The next parking lot selection will occur prior to the 2024 season.

If you select a seat in a section that does not require a per-seat contribution (Zone 6), you will not have to pay a per-seat contribution.

Beginning with the 2022 season, all qualifying contributions for season tickets and parking must be made to the Buckeye Club via your per-seat contribution and/or parking qualification. You may still give to a non-athletic fund to receive President’s Club recognition and increase your priority points. However, President’s Club annual and lifetime donors will no longer qualify for tickets and parking through President’s Club recognition beginning with their 2021 contributions.

Suites, Loge and Club Seat holders will not be impacted by the per-seat contribution model. They will retain their contracted seats as long as they continue to fulfill the obligations in your contract.

Beginning with the 2022 season, priority for away and post season games will be based on ticket availability and be determined by giving level and then priority points within each level.

Beginning with the 2022 season, priority is determined through a combination of lifetime and annual giving to Athletics.

Lifetime giving levels include total overall giving to Athletics (excluding planned giving).

Annual giving levels include all giving to Buckeye Club, per-seat contributions, Athletics pledge payments ($100k overall pledges or more) and football premium seat payments (excluding planned giving and ticket/parking money).

Priority is first determined by Athletics giving level and then priority points within each level. Donors within each giving level are ranked based on their priority points.

You will receive points (1 point for every $10) for any remaining balances on Athletics pledges of $100,000 or more. Athletics pledges of $100,000 or more exclude Buckeye Club, per-seat contributions and pledges to non-Athletics units.

Beginning with the 2022 season, the best way to improve your ranking within each giving level is to make your contribution to the Buckeye Club by March 1, 2022. Your priority points ranking within each giving level as of March 1, 2022 will determine the order in which you will choose your seats and parking lot along with your priority for away/post-season tickets.
