Daily Compliance Item- 9/9/13- 12.5.1.1, 12.5.2.1- Tickets

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.
