Ohio State will get 10 extra practices this summer as it prepares for its overseas trip to Spain, and now fans can watch one of them.
The program announced that its July 31 practice at Value City Arena will be free and open to the public. Doors to the arena will open at 5 p.m. and fans must enter through the northwest rotunda and sit on the south side of the lower bowl behind the team benches. The event is scheduled to run until approximately 6:30 p.m., with coach Chris Holtmann and selected players to address the crowd at roughly 6 p.m.
Parking is free, and no concessions will be served.
The following day, the Buckeyes will leave for their trip to Spain on a trip that will see them play games in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. Ohio State will face the Madrid Generals on August 4, the Valencia All Stars on August 7 and the Catalan All Stars on August 9 before returning to Columbus on the 11th.
The Buckeyes will also visit Toledo, take a tour of Real Madrid’s stadium, sail on a catamaran and visit a bullfighting museum.
