Ohio State Buckeyes outsell Penn State

Ohio State Buckeyes outsell Penn State

Ohio State University football program have announced that close to 30,000 season tickets have been taken up by students for the 2014 season, this is a reported 13% increase on 2013 numbers outselling rival program Penn State who sold 21,000 to its students.

College numbers for 2013 are pretty startling to non American sports fans who perhaps are not as accustomed to intercollegiate sports. To understand, that attendance for games can rival and eclipse fixtures like “El Classico”, the Milan derby, and anything we have in the UK is hard to comprehend.

American Collegiate sports is big business and a part of all American sports mad families way of life. Its refreshing that the competitors are all about the school badge and not the dollars going into their bank accounts (a salary would breach NCAA rules).

College sports in America is different and not something we can recreate in the United Kingdom but I believe we can certainly adopt some of its characteristics as well as encourage a handful of students who wish to attend a US school to go for it.

Route 1 Consultancy are passionate about helping these students achieve their academic and sporting dreams. Contact us now to find out more.
