Ohio State is hoping to have Ohio Stadium at full capacity this fall as the university announced season tickets are now on sale.

“Our hope is that we are at full capacity for our football games,” Senior Vice President and Wolfe Foundation Director of Athletics Gene Smith said.

Smith said they will continue to work with their university partners and Columbus Public Health on safety protocols including encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated.

“You’ll continue to hear that message of support for vaccinations a lot from our department, the university and Columbus Public Health because it is a key component to having a full stadium in the fall,” he said.
