Safelite Field coming to Ohio Stadium in 2022 as Buckeyes get new on-field sponsor
Ohio Stadium will have a sponsor on its field starting in the 2022 season.
Safelite, the vehicle glass services and recalibration company in Columbus, will become the first company to sponsor field logos on what will be called "Safelite Field." The field will feature two white Safelite placements opposite the Big Ten logos.
Safelite was the first company to sponsor a logo on Ohio Stadium's field goal netting in 2014.

Ohio State replaced the FieldTurf at Ohio Stadium this summer
Ohio State began replacing its FieldTurf in Ohio Stadium June 1 and was completed in July by Cincinnati-based Motz Group and its turf manufacturing partner Shaw Sports Turf.
The turf was last upgraded before the 2014 season and was due for an upgrade after multiple players experienced footing issues early last season.
FieldTurf was first put down at Ohio Stadium in 2007, which replaced the natural grass field that was installed in 1990.
Ohio State will open the 2022 season at home Sept. 3 against Notre Dame.
