The 2019 Ohio State Spring Game is just a week away. It kicks off at noon on Saturday, April 13.
In reality, it’s just the 15th and final practice of the spring football season, dressed up as an intra-squad scrimmage. This is more than enough to draw Ohio State fans from around the state and across the nation back to the Horseshoe like the swallows to Capistrano or the buzzards to Hinckley.
The annual event is unquestionably a great chance to get outside and enjoy some football and football-adjacent activities such as tailgating, yelling in public, and jersey-wearing. Previous editions have seen more than 100,000 fans pack Ohio Stadium.
This year’s edition of the Ohio State Spring Game will definitely not reach 100,000 fans. Much like the last couple seasons, capacity is capped at around 76,000 due to construction work going on inside the stadium. The photo at the top of the article shows the progress made in the new suite construction in the northwest corner, as of Friday afternoon.
An OSU spokesman said that more than 50,000 seats have already been sold for the Spring Game.
That means that if you’re interested in going to the game, you should probably buy tickets in advance.
General admission prices are $5, plus there is a limited number of $15 reserved club seats.
