Football Tickets and Game Day Parking

In order to qualify for the opportunity to apply to purchase home season football tickets, donors must have made their qualifying gift of $3,000 or more by December 31 of the year prior to the football season and accepted the opportunity to apply to purchase tickets. Football ticket invoices are generated and delivered by the Department of Athletics Ticket Office in early March to those who have met all requirements.

The tax law that went into effect on January 1, 2018, eliminated a provision that allowed individuals to deduct 80% of their charitable contributions connected to the right to purchase athletics tickets. As a result, for Buckeye Club members and President’s Club donors, the non-deductible portion of their contribution has increased from $300 to $1,500 for the opportunity to purchase football tickets. Contributions above $1,500 with no other associated return benefits will be considered charitable.
