Ohio State spring football is back, and now fans will get a chance to enjoy it live. That’s because the school announced that it is allowing up to 19,000 fans to take in the game on April 19.

Tickets will go on sale for the general public Monday at 11 a.m. Ohio State will also reserve 2,500 tickets in the south stands strictly for students.

Those attending will be required to adhere to the following guidelines, per the school:

  • Masks will be mandatory for all guests and event staff at all times while attending the spring game as well as additional events at Ohio State’s athletic venues and facilities.
  •  All guests and staff will be asked to remain six feet apart.
  •  In areas where the department anticipates lines forming, there will be ground markings placed six feet apart on the floor/pavement.
  • “Control Staff” and restroom attendants will remind guests to remain diligent with hand washing and safe distancing.
  •  Fans will be reminded to stay seated while actively eating or drinking.
  • Ohio State has a No Bag Policy. Bags or purses of any size are NOT permitted in Ohio Stadium. Wallets and wristlets no larger than 5”x8”x1” are permitted.
