Important ticket information for the 2023 ODU Football season:

The renewal deadline for football season tickets is May 1. ODAF Game Plans will be hitting mailboxes in mid- to late-March and will provide detailed information on ticket pricing, seat locations, and individual ODAF giving.
Bench back seats range from $150-$215 for the season and chair back seats range from $300-$350, depending on location. A full seating map for S.B. Ballard Stadium, with 2023 season ticket prices, can be found by clicking the button above.
Continuing with the recent change from last year, seat memberships are no longer required to purchase season tickets within S. B. Ballard Stadium. The listed ticket price (plus fees) for each seat is all that the customer will pay. ODU does not plan to go through "reseating" in the future as part of the seat selection process. Customers who purchase season tickets will have the rights to purchase the same seats the following year at the designated season ticket price.
Although there are no longer seat membership fees, chair back seats will be in high demand and priority in seating will be given to Old Dominion Athletic Foundation members. Contact the ODAF at 757-683-6863 for further information.
Season ticket holders who renew or purchase their seats by the May 1 renewal deadline will be able to choose to have their season tickets printed and mailed to their location, or have mobile tickets delivered electronically to their email address. All premium areas will use printed tickets or wristbands for access. All tickets will be delivered in August, regardless of purchase date.
Fans are encouraged to purchase season tickets for the upcoming season to receive the best seat in the stadium all season long!

Football game day policies include:

Mobile Ticketing
