Ohio State set to keep $9 student tickets for men’s basketball

Fans of The Ohio State University men’s basketball team could see some new price options for tickets next year.

Under the plan recommended by the university athletic council and administrators, two new price zones would be established in the lower level seating areas with a slight increase in pricing, while upper level seating zones will have prices either reduced or remaining the same. The change would see arena seating move from four price zones to six price zones.

The university has also proposed keeping individual student ticket price to $9 for both conference and non-conference games. The Board of Trustees will consider the change when it meets later this week.

Single game ticket prices for the general public would range from $7 to $28 for most non-conference games, $10 to $45 for most conference games and $14 to $57 for premier games.

Season ticket prices will continue to reflect discounts off the combined total price of individual game tickets of 12 percent for the public and 20 percent for faculty and staff.

In 2018-2019, matchups against Syracuse, Michigan State, Purdue and Wisconsin were designated premier games. The 2019-20 schedule has not yet been determined.

Ohio State first introduced variable pricing for men’s basketball games in 2013
