2019 Big Ten Championships ticket information coming soon.


Please be aware of the change in our NCAA ticket policy. Our objective is to offer the fairest opportunities for our fan base to support the program at the NCAA tournament.

You will be entered in the 2019 NCAA ticket lottery as a thank you for your donation of $1,500 or more to the wrestling program between April 1, 2018 and November 15, 2018. If you would like to split up your payments, please make sure your total of $1,500 starts April 1, 2018 and is completed by November 15, 2018. We cannot guarantee you will receive NCAA tickets, but it does create an equitable opportunity.

The Process:
In mid-November, we will send out an email with NCAA ticket information. At this time, you can request up to 4 tickets, however this number will not be guaranteed until we determine how many tickets the NCAA is allocating to us. Location of seats will not be determined until we have all requests for tickets.

In the mid-November email, your credit card information will be requested. We will not charge your card until we have determined who will receive NCAA tickets.

By the end of January 2019, confirmation emails will be sent to those who will receive NCAA tickets and credit cards will be charged.

If you are a season ticket holder, you can make a donation of at least $100 (between April 1, 2018 and November 11, 2018) to be included on a NCAA ticket lottery waitlist. If any tickets remain following the $1,500+ donor ticket lottery, we will reach out to you.

If you are a donor between $100 - $1,499, you can make your donation between April 1, 2018 and November 11, 2018 to be included on a NCAA ticket lottery waitlist. If any tickets remain following the $1,500+ donor ticket lottery, we will reach out to you.

Please know that your financial support is critically needed to help the student-athletes in our program continue to be among the elite.

If you have any questions about our new NCAA ticket policy, please contact the wrestling office at 614-292-9323.

  • Duplicates may only be requested by the original account holder in person or IN WRITING via e-mail to athletic.tix@osu.edu or by fax to (614) 688-3032. When making the request, the original account holder may give one alternate pick up name if necessary.

If the full package is still not received by four days prior to the second match, duplicates will be created for the remaining matches in the season ticket package.
  • Duplicate tickets cannot be duplicated again.


What is will-call?
Will call is a location where one may pick up tickets purchased without sufficient time to mail or if an individual prefers to pick up their order. Will call orders may be picked up at the Jerome Schottenstein Center prior to the day of the event. If you must pick up your order on the day of the event, will call will be made available at St. John Arena starting 90 minutes prior to the start of the event.

In order to pick up your will call tickets, you will be required to present:

  • Your valid state or government issued photo ID, driver's license or passport. A valid ID must be duly issued by a government agency and include a photo and a signature
  • The credit card you used to purchase the tickets if necessary

The Ohio State Ticket Office will not release tickets if the name on the ID and credit card does not match the name used to purchase the tickets, or if the photo on the ID does not appear to be the photo of the person retrieving the tickets. The original ticket holder may designate another individual to pick up their tickets by contacting us in writing prior to event day. Requests must be approved by the Ohio State Ticket Office.

Wrestling match day will call locations and availability:
Will call is located in the Southeast corner of the Schottenstein Center and is open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm and starting 90 minutes before the start of the match on home match days at the Southeast lobby of St. John Arena for:

Purchasing a ticket from someone outside of the Ohio State Ticket Office
Ohio State Department of Athletics cannot guarantee that any tickets purchased from a third party source are valid or that they will allow you entry into the stadium/arena. Tickets should always be purchased from an authorized ticket agent. The Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office, Ticketmaster, and the Ohio State Buckeyes Ticket Exchange are the only authorized sources for tickets to Ohio State events. Fans purchasing tickets from unauthorized sources (including StubHub, Vivid Seats, Craigslist, EBay, and ticket brokers) assume the risk that tickets purchased could be counterfeit or that the barcodes have been otherwise invalidated. Guests with invalid tickets will be denied entry to the venue and will have no recourse for reimbursement or other compensation.

MOBILE PHONE ENTRY: Only Ticketmaster mobile-compatible tickets (generated by Ticketmaster and shown on a mobile device as a QR code, not a standard barcode) will be allowed to enter the venue via mobile device. All traditional print-at-home or PDF tickets MUST be printed and presented on paper for entry. As a service to our patrons, tickets purchased via unauthorized sources such as StubHub, Vivid Seats, eBay, Craigslist, ticket brokers, or other agents not authorized by Ohio State may be reprinted by the Ohio State Ticket Office in conjunction with a non-refundable $10-$20 per ticket fee. PLEASE NOTE: The ticket office is not responsible for validating tickets that were not purchased through an authorized source, and reprinting the ticket does not guarantee the validity of the ticket or entry into the venue. PROTECT YOURSELF- Only purchase tickets from authorized sources.

If I cannot attend an event, is my ticket refundable?
Unfortunately, all tickets purchased thru the OSU Ticket Office are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Can I lose my ticket privileges?
Yes, you may lose your ticket privileges if you have engaged in conduct that is determined, by either OSU or the NCAA, to be in violation of any NCAA rule or if, in OSU's reasonable discretion, you have otherwise taken any action that jeopardizes the eligibility of OSU's programs or its student-athletes.
