DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS AUGUST 1, 2015 —
Hello Fellow Buckeyes:
It is hard to believe that it’s been almost six months since our Buckeyes took the college sports world by storm in winning the historic first College Football Playoff in NCAA Division I football history. Such an amazing national championship season it was… the ups, the downs, the injuries, a team tragedy and then finally the then finally the post-season triumphs over Wisconsin (59-0), Alabama (42-35) and Oregon (42-20)!
As the summer arrives that means that college football can’t be far behind. Last year it was the Board of OSULA’s great pleasure to offer the opportunity for our General Membership to share in our President’s Club Tickets, and at our Annual Summer Kickoff BBQ in Calabasas you overwhelmingly voted to participate. So, now we are announcing how this lottery will take place for the 2015-16 season.
There will be three categories of tickets offered in this OSULA Football Ticket Lottery.
- NON CONFERENCE HOME GAMES:
All tickets for this year’s three home non-conference games shall be offered to you. Each official member of OSULA in good standing as of August 1, 2015 shall be allowed one FREE ENTRY in the OSULA Football Ticket Lottery for each of the following non-conference home games.
- Sept. 12 -Hawaii
- Sept. 19 -Northern Illinois
- Sept. 26 – Western Michigan
You also may purchase additional chances for $1 each for any of these three games without any limit to the number of lottery entries you purchase.
- CONFERENCE HOME GAMES:
OSULA members in good standing as of the above mentioned date shall also be allowed to purchase lottery chances for the following home games.
- Oct. 10 – Maryland
- Nov. 7 – Minnesota
These lottery chances shall have no free entries. Each entry shall be $1 with a minimum of five chances to be purchased. So, if you are interested in attending these games please be aware that your first entry must be for $5 which will give you five chances to purchase tickets for these games. Again, there will be no limits to the number of chances that you may purchase. For example if you want to purchase just one chance…that would be a cost of $5 and give you 5 chances. If you wish to purchase 21 chances, the amount you would send would be. $21 and you would have 21 chances.
III. PREMIER GAMES:
These games are determined by the Ohio State Athletic Department on a yearly basis. The face value of these tickets is higher than other Ohio State home game tickets. Members in good standing as of the above mentioned date shall be offered the opportunity to purchase lottery tickets for the follow games.
- Oct. 17 – Penn State
- Nov. 21 – Michigan State
The price of these lottery chances shall be $10 each with no minimum of chances required. You can purchase one chance or ten chances. For example if you wished to purchase 10 chances that would cost $100.
The board has tried to develop a plan which benefits our membership as well as gives OSULA the opportunity to raise money for our Scholarship & Endowment Funds. All proceeds from this lottery shall be earmarked for those and those alone. None of the money raised shall go into our general funds.
- You must be a paid member of OSULA. (To join or renew, visit OSULA.org and click the gray “JOIN” button.)
- If you win any of the above OSULA Football Ticket Lotteries, full payment of the face value of those game tickets must be made to OSULA within seven business days.
- You may not – under any circumstances – sell these tickets for above face value to family, friends or any kind of ticket brokerage agency. Doing so would be in violation of your OSULA membership and would result in your immediate removal from our club per guidelines from The Ohio State University Alumni Association (OSUAA).
Once you decide which football lottery tickets (games you are interested in) please make a check out for the total amount of tickets you are purchasing. The check should be made to OSULA (this check will be for the value of the OSULA Football Ticket Lottery tickets only… NOT the face value of the game tickets). Please designate on a piece of paper how many tickets you are purchasing and for what games. If you are purchasing lottery tickets for more than one game, please include a breakdown of how many lottery chances you want for each game. Also include your Name, Phone Number, Mailing address and your Email address if you have one.
WHERE TO SEND YOUR ENTRY:
- OSULA, 1049 Havenhurst Dr., Suite 109-586, West Hollywood, CA 90046.
OSULA TICKET LOTTERY DEADLINE:
ALL Entries Must Be Received By AUGUST 1, 2015. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this deadline, and USPS postmark dates will NOT be considered for any entries received after the deadline. The drawing will be made as soon as possible after the August 1, 2015 deadline with notification of the winners being done immediately.

Once again…there are NO LIMITS to the number of lottery tickets you can purchase, nor the amount of games which you can purchase lottery tickets for.
Finally, in the interest of full disclosure, all members of the OSULA Board of Directors will be given five free lottery chances which they may use toward any of the above games. They also may purchase additional chances for any of the above games.
We as the Board of OSULA are very pleased to offer you this opportunity to be a part of The Ohio State University’s grand football tradition.
If you have not renewed your current membership or if you let it lapse from the previous year…we urge you to do so at once in order that you might participate in this OSULA Football Ticket Lottery and other future Bowl Game Ticket Offerings. Please be aware that in order to purchase any Bowl Game Tickets through OSULA you must be a member as of Sept. 15, 2015. This year the National Title game will be in Glendale Arizona. OSULA has in the past ALWAYS been offered tickets for any games in the Phoenix area. As it looks now we would suggest to all of you that you don’t want to miss the opportunity to be a part of this very anticipated upcoming football season where our Buckeyes will be defending Big Ten Conference and National Champions. The pundits are all picking Ohio State to make a return trip to the College Football Playoff.
We on the Board of OSULA are proud to represent you as one of the best Alumni Clubs in the USA.
