Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has said he wants Ohio Stadium to be full for the 2014 Spring Game, and now fans might have a better chance of affording a ticket.
According to a Friday OSU press release, tickets to Saturday’s annual Scarlet and Gray intrasquad scrimmage have been reduced to $5. Initially, the price for advanced tickets was $12, and tickets at the gate were $20.
“We want everybody who wants to attend the game to be able to come to Ohio Stadium,” Martin Jarmond, executive associate director of athletics said in the release. “We are encouraged by the weather forecast and we want our fans to come to the ‘Shoe and enjoy watching the Buckeyes.”
Start time for the game is set for approximately 1:30 p.m., with temperatures expected to be around 70 degrees, according to weather.com.
The proceeds from all ticket sales are slated to be donated to the LiFE Sports program and Boys and Girls Club of Columbus, according to the release.
Fans who purchased general admission tickets in advance have the option of choosing to get a refund for the difference at their point of purchase beginning Monday, or they can elect to have the difference donated, according to the release.
