Ohio State University trustees have approved an increase in ticket prices.

The increase includes 'Premier' home football and basketball games which will cost extra for fans wanting to see the best match-ups.

Starting for the 2013 football season, 'non-Premier' games will increase in cost from $70 per ticket to $79 per ticket.

If there are two 'Premier' games a season, Ohio State will increase those ticket costs to $125 or $150 a game. If there's only one designated 'Premier' game, officials could elect to charge as much as $175 for the best tickets.

Other football ticket increases include student tickets going up $2 per game.

For Ohio State Men's basketball, conference ticket prices will go up $6 per game in the lower bowl seats and $4 in the upper bowl area. Faculty, staff, and student tickets will also increase in price for conference games.

Ohio State will also designate up to five 'Premier' basketball games with ticket prices up to $47 for the best seats.
