Ohio State has seen another dip in football season-ticket sales.

The school said Wednesday that it sold 42,373 season tickets to donors, faculty members and the general public by its renewal deadline on July 1. The figures, which were provided to The Dispatch in response to a public-records request, do not include student tickets.

Non-student season tickets have declined each year since 2017, when Ohio State sold as many as 53,926 seats — a number that could fill more than half of the stands at Ohio Stadium. It then fell to 53,151 in 2018, 50,868 in 2019 and 44,320 in 2020.

Sales last year were impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, which caused uncertainty over the fate of the season during springtime renewal periods and ultimately led schools throughout the Big Ten to restrict fan attendance. Only the families of players, coaches and staff were permitted to attend games.

Among other options, Ohio State offered full refunds to season-tickets holders when the season was initially canceled last August.

As the pandemic has eased in recent months and stadium capacity restrictions have been lifted, OSU officials have planned for the possibility of Ohio Stadium brimming with fans when it hosts games in the fall.
