Football Ticket Exchange/Donation

Each year, our Club provides a Ticket Exchange/Donation service for our members. Once again, Steve Klepchak is the contact.


The club will offer a referral service for those looking to buy OSU home game tickets as well as for those wanting to sell OSU home game tickets (Note, the Michigan game has never been available). Contact Steve at 248 628-4656 or at bux72@yahoo.com Provide your name, telephone number, email address & the home game that you are interested in buying or selling. If there is a buyer or seller, Steve will put you in touch with that person. Transactions are between the two parties.


If you are interested in donating a pair of tickets for a significant home game that the Club can place in an auction package or raffle for the Scholarship program, the Club will gladly accept and provide you with a donation form indicating the value of your donation toward the Scholarship Fund. Please provide donated tickets in a timely manner so there is sufficient time for the Club to auction off a package to Club members.
