Seats for Servicemembers

Seats for Servicemembers began in 2011 when the Penn State Football team played Navy in Beaver Stadium. Penn State supporters were provided with the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for military members and veterans to attend the game for free with their families as a thank you for their service. In 2011, 250 military members were supported. Last year, the program grew to support over 8,000 Servicemembers and their families with complimentary tickets and a pre-game tailgate.

This year, the military appreciation game will take place on November 11th at Beaver Stadium when the Nittany Lions host Rutgers. Prior to the game, all military, including those with tickets to the game, are invited to the Bryce Jordan Center for a complimentary pre-game tailgate.

For Servicemembers looking to request complimentary tickets purchased by Penn State supporters, please check back around July or August for a registration link. If you have attended a game in the past, as part of the Seats for Servicemembers program, you will receive an email as soon as registration is available. If you haven't attended a game in the past, but would like to be on our e-mail list, please call 1-800-NITTANY Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm ET.
