Be among the first to get an "inside look" at the brand-new Covelli Center and Jennings Wrestling Facility at Ohio State -- and meet Buckeyes head wrestling coach Tom Ryan -- at the Wrestling Open House on Tuesday, July 23, the Buckeye wrestling program announced Tuesday.

The event will take place next Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Covelli Center, located on the Ohio State campus at 2640 Fred Taylor Drive, just east of Ohio 315 at the Lane Avenue exit, in Columbus. Admission is free; parking is $5.

Wrestling fans interested in attending the open house should use the entrance at the southwest corner of Covelli Center.

The open house is an unbeatable opportunity for fans to get a behind-the-scenes, full-access look at the new home of Ohio State wrestling, including the Covelli Center 3,700-seat arena that will be home to the Buckeye wrestling events… along with the wrestling room, workout facilities and other aspects of the Jennings Wrestling Facility that's part of the same structure.

In addition, visitors to the wrestling open house will have plenty of meet-and-greet opportunities… including the chance to talk to head coach Tom Ryan. What's more, there will be fun activities for kids on the Covelli Center concourse. Food will be available for purchase from the Iron Grill BBQ food truck.

Ohio State wrestling fans may purchase new season tickets at the open house, as account executives will be on site to answer questions and take orders. Seat selection will follow online later that week by assigned seat selection windows.

Covelli Center will host its first dual meet as Ohio State welcomes Stanford on Saturday, Nov. 10.
