Active duty, Guard and Reserve military, veterans, and fallen and Gold Star families are now able to apply online for free donated tickets to the Penn State — Iowa game on Saturday, Nov. 5 as part of the Seats for Servicemembers program.

In its fifth year, the program honors the commitment and sacrifices of veterans, families and loved ones by providing tickets at no cost to active and retired Servicemembers, as well as a complimentary pregame tailgate at Bryce Jordan Center. Penn State supporters, alumni, and business donations have graciously made this possible.

Made possible by Penn State supporters, 7,500 tickets will be available for military members and veterans, their families and loved ones to request here to sign up for free tickets on a first-come, first-served basis to the Nov. 5 game. All active duty, Guard and Reserve military, veterans, and fallen and Gold Star families are eligible to redeem one complimentary ticket for themselves and three additional complimentary seats for immediate family members. Additionally, all qualifying individuals are eligible to purchase up to five additional tickets for a discounted rate of just $35 per person. There will be 7,500 tickets available to be distributed at this point — all sign-ups are simply requests until confirmed via email by Penn State Athletics.

Supporters can still purchase Seats for Servicemembers tickets that will be distributed to military by clicking here or calling 1-800-NITTANY, Monday — Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tickets for the Seats for Servicemembers program are $35 per Servicemember.
