Bobcat Club Priority Points System


The Ohio Bobcat Club uses a Priority Point system for the proper and equitable allocation of tickets for all Football and Men's Basketball postseason events. This includes, but is not limited to, Bowl games, NCAA Tournament games, and MAC Championship events. The purpose of the Ohio Bobcat Club Priority Point system is to reward supporters of Ohio Athletics who have provided financial support and continued loyalty to the program.

Please note that the formula to calculate points includes all historical documented gifts to athletics department accounts within the Ohio University Foundation. Points for documented season ticket history are calculated beginning in 2002.

(not season ticket deadlines!)

Donations received by the dates below will be used towards calculating Priority Points for the following events.
