COLUMBUS, Ohio — With Ohio State eyeing full capacity at Ohio Stadium this season, the Buckeyes announced ticket plans for the 2021 campaign. 

In order to get to full capacity, the athletics department is encouraging OSU fans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Ohio State began invoicing season ticket holders on Tuesday. Those interested in purchasing season tickets were also able to do so starting Tuesday. Season tickets cost $702 per seat, with an additional $750 donation to OSU required per account. 

Staff and faculty can begin purchasing season tickets on Wednesday. 

Students can purchase season tickets June 21-24. 

Multi-game packages are scheduled to go on sale in early August. Single-game tickets will go on sale in mid-August, the university said. 

“Our hope is that we are at full capacity for our football games,” Gene Smith, the OSU director of athletics, said. “We will continue to work with our university partners and with Columbus Public Health on all of our safety protocols, including strongly encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated. You’ll continue to hear that message of support for vaccinations a lot from our department, the university and Columbus Public Health because it is a key component to having a full stadium in the fall.”

The Buckeyes have seven home games on the 2021 schedule. All tickets will be via mobile device starting this season.

The Buckeyes are coming off a Big Ten title and visit to the College Football Playoff title game in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. The general public was not allowed in Ohio Stadium for 2020 home games.

OSU will be looking to replace star quarterback Justin Fields.
