COLUMBUS, Ohio – While the fall is still several months away, Ohio State fans eager for some football only have to wait until April for their next look at the Buckeyes.

Tickets for this year's spring game will go on sale Friday. General admission prices are $5 plus there will be a limited number of $15 reserved club seats. Applicable service charges may apply. Parking is free.

The spring game will be held Saturday, April 14, at 1:45 p.m. approximate start time.

The university recommends buying tickets earlier since there'll be reduced capacity due to construction on the west side of the stadium.

Prior to the football game, the Ohio State’s men’s lacrosse team, the 2017 national runners-up, will host Michigan at 11 a.m. in another “Showdown at the Shoe” event. One purchased ticket will allow admission into both events.

Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets early. Construction on the west side of the stadium will reduce its seating capacity.

Tickets can also be purchased in person at the OSU Athletics Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-GOBUCKS (select option 3).

Group tickets – $4 for groups of 50 or more – are available by calling the Group Sales Office at 1-800-GOBUCKS (select Option 2). Fans requiring wheelchair accessible seating are encouraged to purchase accessible seats in advance.

Children under the age of 6 are free in the general admission areas only (everyone in club seating areas will be required to have a ticket). Current OSU students get in free with a valid OSU ID, and should enter the stadium through Gate 32.

Ohio State will kick off its 2018 spring drills Tuesday, March 6. A second practice will be held Thursday, March 8 before a week-long hiatus March 12-16 for spring break. Practices will resume March 19 and continue for the next four weeks leading up to the spring game.

Ohio State’s on-campus NFL “pro day” is set for Thursday, March 22.
