MEN'S ICE HOCKEY FAQS
MEN'S ICE HOCKEY WILL-CALL
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 or starting 1 to 1 ½ hours 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. Students are required to pick up their own athletic tickets and must present their Buck ID at time of pick up.
Effective September 2008: The Ohio State Ticket Office will no longer accept outside will call. Outside will call is anything "dropped off" by an individual at the Ohio State Ticket Office windows for another individual to pick up.
