Ohio Stadium will have its own DJ playing the hits during football games this season.

According to an Ohio State release on Friday afternoon about new features coming to the Shoe this season, “a DJ will be on the field level both pregame and during the game playing everyone’s favorites to enhance the gameday environment.”

Other new features coming to the Shoe this year will include a new assortment of concession items and free refills on all soft drinks. Nine grab-and-go concession stands, where fans will be able to select their own items and pay at a kiosk, have also been added around the stadium.

As previously announced by Ohio State, Ohio Stadium will also finally have WiFi for fans for the first time this season.

Ohio Stadium will have an official capacity of 102,780 this year, a slight increase from last year, when capacity was reduced from 104,944 to 102,082. A new premium seating area that was under construction last year in B deck will be open this year, increasing the stadium's capacity.

Other stadium improvements entering the 2019 season include concession stand renovations, seatback chair installations and new LED boards, speakers, televisions and directional signage.
