COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State University Department of Athletics announced a change in ticketing options to get more Buckeye fans to football games for the 2019 season.

For the first time, three flexible ticketing options will be offered to the general public in addition to full season ticket packages for Buckeye Club members.

“We understand this new ticket marketplace and that fans want options,” Diana Sabau, deputy director of athletics, said. “We have inventory and so we want to respond to the needs of Buckeye Nation. We realize it can be difficult to commit to a full season ticket, so we want to provide numerous ticket buying alternatives to make Ohio State games more accessible to more fans.”

Fans have three options in the new flexible ticketing plan that goes on sale in June:

Buckeye Flex Pass

  • 100 percent digital plan with seat location sent to mobile phones the Friday before the game
  • A unique seat location for each game, ensuring various viewpoints and experiences for the games
  • A limited number of four-game packages priced at $249
  • Includes Florida Atlantic, Miami, Michigan State and Maryland games
  • Sales begin June 17

Rush Plan

  • A unique seat location for each game
  • Customers will know seat locations prior to purchasing the plan
  • Full ticket management options (mobile entry, transfer to friends, post for sale on Ohio State TicketExchange)
  • Three-game packages priced at $327
  • Includes Miami, Maryland and Wisconsin games
  • On sale June 24

Blitz Plan

  • A unique seat location for each game
  • Customers will know seat locations prior to purchasing the plan
  • Full ticket management options (mobile entry, transfer to friends, post for sale on Ohio State TicketExchange)
  • Three-game packages priced at $297
  • Includes Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati and Michigan State games
  • On sale June 24

These new ticketing options follow a season that saw a major dip in fan attendance. In the September 8 game against Rutgers last season, the Buckeyes announced an official attendance of 93,057 fans, breaking a 16-year streak of drawing crowds larger than 100,000.

While the three new options are not available until June, Buckeye Club members will have access to purchasing full season ticket packages on Monday, May 13. In addition, limited single game tickets for the 2019 season will go on sale on July 19, according to The Ohio State University.
