Will I have to buy a ticket for my small child if I'm attending a Michigan football game?

Paying for Children at Big Ten College Games

Some events allow children under a certain age in for free. Not so with Big Ten Conference football games. Remember that Big Ten Conference rules say every person who attends a football game must have a ticket regardless of age. This is a popular concern by parents who attend these games.

If you are buying Michigan football tickets or Badgers football tickets and plan to take a child, know that you will have to pay for him or her, even if the child is an infant.

Here is a list of who's in the Big Ten Conference, so you will know whether this rule applies to a college football game you are attending:

  • Ohio State Buckeyes
  • Purdue University Boilermakers
  • University of Illinois Fighting Illini
  • Indiana University Hoosiers
  • University of Iowa Hawkeyes
  • University of Michigan Wolverines
  • Michigan State Spartans
  • University of Minnesota Golden Gophers
  • Northwestern University Wildcats
  • Penn State University Nittany Lions
  • University of Wisconsin Badgers
