Oregon State pays Idaho $ 675,000 and Hawaii $ 425,000 for soccer video games at Reser Stadium in September
Oregon State is paying $ 1.1 million to host off-conference soccer games against Hawaii and Idaho at Reser Stadium this September.
According to gaming contracts received from The Oregonian / OregonLive, OSU will pay $ 675,000 for a game on September 18 at Reser in Idaho and $ 425,000 for a game on September 11 in Hawaii.
In addition, Purdue will pay Oregon State $ 200,000 for its non-conference game on September 4th in West Lafayette, Ind.
The Idaho payment is considered the market price for an FCS opponent traveling to play against an FBS team at their stadium. In 2019, Oregon State paid Cal Poly $ 600,000 to play a non-conference game. Last year, OSU had planned to pay Portland State $ 400,000 to play at Reser Stadium before the game was canceled due to the pandemic. The rate is lower for PSU as travel costs are lower and schools play regularly.
The Oregon state contract with Idaho, signed in September 2016, contains a clause that the cancellation fee is $ 675,000 if either side is eliminated from the game.
Idaho will also receive 300 free tickets and up to 300 additional tickets on sale.
The Oregon State Treaty with Hawaii is a house-and-house agreement. The Beavers played in Hawaii in 2019.
The contract, which was signed in August 2012, originally called for a game in September 2020, but has been postponed to 2021. In addition to paying $ 425,000, Hawaii also receives 500 free tickets and up to 4,000 additional tickets to purchase.
If either side is eliminated from the game, the cancellation fee is $ 725,000.
The Purdue contract is a house and home that will be completed in 2024 when the Boilermakers play in Corvallis. The payment is $ 200,000 each to the visiting team.
Should either school decide not to play, the cancellation fee is $ 1 million.
Oregon State will receive 300 complimentary tickets to the September 4th game and up to 1,500 additional tickets for purchase.
