Ocean State University ticket office is working on a design for this year’s men’s and women’s basketball tickets. The ticket manager would like to include a picture of each student-athlete on the front of all home game ticekts. If there is a coupon for Dunkin Donuts on the back of the ticket, is it permissible to include the picture of a current student-athlete on the front?
Yes. NCAA Official Interpretation- 2/18/88- Use of a student-athlete’s name or picture on a game ticket – states that it is permissible for an institution to utilize a game ticket that has the name or picture of an enrolled student-athlete on the face of the ticket and a commercial company’s coupon or advertisement (unrelated to the student-athlete) on the back of the ticket.
