Texas Tech Athletics and Veteran Tickets Foundation have partnered up. Vet Tix is a non-profit organization that provides free and discounted tickets to verified active military and veterans.

Texas Tech will donate two tickets for it's season opener against Montana State for every football season ticket, mobile plan or mini-plan package purchased from July 1-7. You can take part in the “Celebrate America, Celebrate Our Heroes” promotion by calling the Texas Tech Ticket Office at 806-742-TECH or by purchasing online at TexasTech.com.

The partnership will continue through the athletic year allowing season ticket holders, who are unable to attend an event, to donate their tickets to Vet Tix online at VetTix.org who will then supply veterans and active military in West Texas with those tickets.

According to TexasTech.com, "The mission for Vet Tix is to provide event tickets in order to reduce stress, strengthen family bonds, build life-long memories and encourage service members and veterans to stay engaged with local communities and American life. Vet Tix secures tickets for all branches of the military and veterans, including the immediate family of troops unfortunately killed in action."

"Since its founding in 2008, Vet Tix has distributed nearly 7 million tickets to military personnel across the country. Tickets have been given out in all 50 states as well as Washington D.C."
