Ticket Prices Set to Rise for Football and Basketball

Posted by Max in Buckeye Football, Hoops |

According to Cleveland.com, ticket prices are set to rise for 2008.

Tickets for football games will go up by $2 for alumni (costing between $62 and $72) and for faculty and staff (now $51) a piece. The Athletic Council voted to increase the price on student tickets from $30 to $31, but will provide students with an additional 3,500 tickets (going from 26,500 to 30,000)

In terms of basketball, tickets will cost between $16 and $26 for public (a $1 increase), $21 for faculty (a $1 increase) and $14.50 for students (another $1 increase)

Here is an interesting chart which reviews student ticket allotments. It clearly reveals OSU as one of the top schools for getting their tickets to students

While the prices increases are always tough, it is still cheaper than most NFL games. If you can get your hands on a ticket, the cost is still not a major deterrent.

    I remember my freshman year (the national title year), a student ticket cost about $80 for 5 or 6 games. The next year it was $120 for 4 games. Of course I paid for the next few seasons. This would be what economists call perfectly inelastic demand?
