The Ohio State Board of Trustees will discuss Thursday integrating variable ticket pricing into men’s basketball, pricing individual games according to whether it’s an exhibition, non-conference, conference or premier opponent.

This past season, Ohio State listed its premier opponents as Syracuse, Michigan State, Purdue and Wisconsin.

The recommendation, as part of the finance committee meeting, also states that the arena will expand its four ticket price zones to six, establishing one in the lower level seating with an increase in pricing and upper level seating with either reduced pricing or remaining the same.

For Zone 1 seating, the public can purchase tickets, depending on the level of opponent, from as low as $10 to $57. Season tickets will be $634.

For the Zone 6 seating, tickets can be purchased from $5-14 depending on the opponent.

The season ticket discounts will remain at approximately 12 percent off the total for the general public and 20 percent off the total price for Ohio State faculty and staff.

Student pricing will remain at $9 for all opponents.

The 2019-20 men’s basketball schedule has not yet been finalized.
