Ohio State announces capacity for 2021 spring game
Ohio State announced it will allow a limited number of fans to attend its spring game later this month.
The Buckeyes will have a maximum of 19,180 fans in attendance. However, the number of tickets available to the general public will be much less.
Here’s how that breaks down:
- 10,000 seats to the Wexner Medical Center for frontline healthcare workers
- 2,500 seats for students
- 4,500 seats for the general public
Tickets for the general public will go on sale Monday morning and will cost $5 per ticket.
According to the press release, the capacity was determined, “with guidance from Columbus Public Health and with respect to the new health orders announced by Gov. Mike DeWine this week.”
“On behalf of the university and the Department of Athletics, I want to sincerely thank Gov. DeWine, Dr. Mysheika Roberts and Columbus Public Health, and Mayor Ginther and the City of Columbus for their collective leadership throughout this pandemic,” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. “We are not through this health crisis yet, but the collaboration among all of these entities has enabled us to safely return fans to our venues and, in particular, Ohio Stadium next week for the spring game.”
The spring game is scheduled for 12 p.m. on April 17.
