Homecoming football game tickets for alumni continue to be limited. To purchase game tickets, alumni must:

  • Register for the Army ROTC Alumni Society Tailgate
  • Be a current active member of the Army ROTC Alumni Society.
  • Be a sustaining or life member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association

Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Each alumni household may purchase up to four game tickets, and tickets must be purchased in conjunction with tailgate registration.
Game ticket confirmation emails will be sent by September 16. Seat location will not be known until game tickets are released by the Athletics Ticket Office, typically two weeks before the game.
Purchased game tickets will be available for pickup at the tailgate itself. Please contact Alumni Society Secretary David Greer at 740-504-4497 if you arrive after the tailgate or if you are unable to use your game tickets. Late game ticket pickups will be arranged at Converse Hall. Any unused game tickets will be awarded to deserving cadets.
Even if your alumni household already has season tickets, you will be eligible to purchase game tickets through the Army ROTC Alumni Society. You are welcomed and encouraged to attend the Army ROTC Alumni Society Tailgate and other Homecoming Weekend festivities!
