Ohio State fans could be paying more to watch the pigskin next year, under a football ticket prices proposal before the university’s board of trustees this week.
The proposal calls for season ticket holders with reserved seats for the 2019 football season to pay $702, an 8 percent increase over this year’s prices. Box and club season ticket prices for next year would be $851, up from $789 this season.
The proposal would bring prices closer to 2017 season prices.
Student ticket prices will remain unchanged at $34 per game. That price will remain through at least the 2020 season, according to board materials. Student season tickets also will remain unchanged at $238.
The 2019 game against Penn State would be the most expensive home game for fans under the ticket price proposal, at $198 for a reserved seat. The next most expensive game would be the Wisconsin game at $170.
The least expensive games for a reserved seat would be the Florida Atlantic game at $60 per ticket and Miami University game at $65 per ticket.
Looking at the Trustees meeting documents, the prices would be:
Florida Atlantic - $60
Cincinnati - $90
Miami (OH) - $65
Michigan State - $147
Wisconsin - $170
Maryland - $92
Penn State - $198
