UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Active duty, guard and reserve military, veterans, and fallen and Gold Star families are now able to apply online for complimentary tickets to the Penn State-Iowa football game on Saturday, Oct. 27, as part of the Seats for Servicemembers program during Penn State's Military Appreciation Week.

In its seventh 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 the Bryce Jordan Center. Penn State supporters, alumni and business donations have graciously made this possible.

Thanks to the generosity of Penn State supporters, tickets are now available for military members and veterans, their families and loved ones to request on a first-come, first-served basis for the Oct. 27 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 up to three additional complimentary seats for immediate family members. Additionally, all qualifying individuals are eligible to request up to five additional tickets for a discounted rate of just $35 per person. There will be 7,500 tickets available to be distributed — all sign-ups are simply requests until confirmed via email by Penn State Athletics.
