Pirates join forces with GovX.com on military ticket program at PNC Park

Pirates among the first MLB clubs to take part in special online ticket program through GovX.com to honor military service members

This season the Pittsburgh Pirates and GovX.com have joined together to offer exclusive ticketing discounts to benefit and honor military service members at PNC Park. Upgraded for 2014, the Pirates and GovX.com launched their online verification ticketing service exclusive to members of the U.S. Military (active, reserve, veteran and retired). The service provides specially priced Pirates tickets to all Sunday through Friday home games to this deserving group throughout the 2014 baseball season.

To access the exclusive discount of up to $10 off all Sunday through Friday home games, qualified fans can visit the Pirates/GovX ticketing page at pirates.com/military. Upon selecting the desired game, users who are not already GovX.com members are directed to a simple online verification page to complete the one-time verification. From there, users proceed with their ticket selection, where the respective discount is automatically applied. The purchased tickets can then be emailed and downloaded.

"Every day military service members, along with their families, sacrifice so much for all of the rest of us; it's a special honor to bring them together with the Pirates to convey the community's collective gratitude for their service," said Tony Farwell, GovX.com executive chairman and co-founder.

The Pirates and GovX.com are proud to partner together and step up in a meaningful way to thank and honor those who protect and serve our country. In addition to offering specially priced tickets and recognition events for our military, GovX.com and the Pirates will be working closely to create an enduring connection with this deserving group.
