Ohio State moving to mobile-only ticketing option for 2020 season
Ohio State will be making some changes to its season-ticket process for the upcoming season, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
According to a report from Eleven Warriors, Ohio State will be shifting to a mobile-only ticketing system for the upcoming 2020 season. The athletic department sent out an email to season ticket holders this week, informing them of the change.
In addition to that change, the seat selection process will also be going through some changes to allow for proper “physical distancing” guidelines throughout the stadium. A capacity or limit for the attendance number inside Ohio Stadium for the season is still to be determined.
“We are excited to implement digital-only ticketing at our venues and believe it will help us achieve the goal of providing a safe game day experience for everyone,” Ohio State deputy athletic director Diana Sabau said in a statement. “Digital ticketing will allow for contactless entry for fans while also providing flexibility to easily manage their tickets. It will also allow us to better respond to the dynamics surrounding COVID-19 and our increased safety precautions.”
Last week, Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith stated that he envisions anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 fans being allowed to attend home football games this season, depending on social distancing recommendations and guidelines.
