ATHENS, Ohio – Season tickets for the 2003 Ohio football season are now on sale, announced Ohio Athletics ticket director Shelley Binegar today. For the first time since 1981, the Bobcats will play six games in the friendly confines of Peden Stadium.
Binegar also announced a partnership with TicketReturn, a company that will print plastic identification cards for season ticket holders instead of issuing actual tickets.
“We’ll have bar-code scanners at the entrance gates,” said Binegar about how the new plastic ID cards will be used for admission. “It’s a new computerized ticketing system that will help us save money and allow us to better serve our fans.”
Ticket renewal information has already been mailed to past season ticket holders. The deadline for renewal is June 7, approximately the same time single-game tickets for home and away contests will go on sale. Season ticket holders should receive their identification cards in the mail by August 1, along with any parking passes and media guides also ordered with the renewals.

The Bobcats’ 2003 home season begins on Thursday, August 28, against Southeast Missouri State and is highlighted by a September 13 game against Minnesota – the first time a Big Ten school has visited Peden Stadium – and an October 11 Homecoming contest versus the Mid-American Conference’s newest contender, the University of Central Florida.
