National Anthem Singing
How do I tryout to sing?
What do I do when it's my day to sing?
If you are interested in singing the National Anthem at a Bobcat home volleyball, basketball, baseball, or softball game, open auditions will be held at a selected date early in the fall. Anyone interested in singing at a home Bobcat event can show up to tryout. If you are unable to make the selected date, or time, you can contact the Ohio Athletics Marketing Department at 740-593-1168.
All singers are asked to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to game time of the selected event. For Basketball games please enter through the pass gate entrance located on the back side of the Convocation Center, directly across from the Ohio Softball Field. For Volleyball matches, singers may enter through the main entrance of the Convocation Center by the ticket office. For baseball and softball games, singers may enter through the main ticket gate adjacent to Shafer Street. Two tickets will be provided if requested. When arriving at the Convocation Center, check in with the Marketing representative at the scorer's table.
All National Anthem performers will be admitted for free, including choir groups, one Choir Director, and one Assistant Director. Pre-sale group tickets are available for purchase for family and friends who wish to watch the performance. These tickets must be purchased in advance. The Ohio Athletics Ticket Office does not offer group ticket rates or process group ticket orders on the day of an event. For more information please contact the Ohio Athletics Marketing Department at 740-593-1168.
What do I do after the performance?
All National Anthem performers are invited to stay and watch the event. Ohio Athletics asks that you please sit in your assigned seat number, located on your ticket stub.
One parking pass is available upon request; however it must be picked up from the Ohio Athletics Ticket Office at least 24 hours in advance of the game.
