UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The Penn State-Army West Point game on Saturday, October 3 is sold out. The Nittany Lions host the Black Knights for the first time since 1979 as part of Military Appreciation Day.
The sellout includes tickets requested through the Seats for Servicemembers program. Servicemembers from as far away as California, Texas and Washington have signed up to receive donated tickets purchased by Penn State alumni, fans and businesses.
In its fourth year, the Seats for Servicemembers 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.
More than 6,500 Seats for Servicemembers have been donated by Penn State supporters, members of the community and businesses to date, surpassing last year’s total of 5,500.
The most recent Penn State sellout was the thrilling double-overtime Penn State White Out game against Ohio State on Oct. 25, 2014. Single game tickets remain for all other home games this season, including Saturday’s home opener vs. Buffalo and the first-event Beaver Stadium Stripe Out vs. Rutgers at 8 p.m. on Sept. 19.
The kick time and television arrangements for the Army West Point contest are to be determined.
