Aug. 16, 2010

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State fans have the opportunity to give back to the servicemen and women of the United States military by purchasing football season tickets for $199 and donating them to veterans or active duty personnel through the Veteran Tickets Foundation.
 
Veterans Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) is a national non-profit organization whose mission is simple: give something to those who gave. The group, which generates support from numerous universities and professional sports teams, gives free tickets to all Veterans, Active Duty Service Members and their families as a way of saying “thank you.”
 
“We are very fortunate here at Kansas State to have a strong partnership with our brave soldiers and their families at Fort Riley,” said Athletics Director John Currie. “We are grateful to all of our nation’s military for their service and sacrifice and this program is another great way for Wildcat fans to say ‘thanks’ and show their appreciation.”
 
Fans wishing to purchase tickets and donate them to the Veteran Tickets Foundation can call the ticket office at 1-800-221-CATS, or stop by the ticket office in Bramlage Coliseum. To learn more about the Veteran Tickets Foundation, visit www.VetTix.org.
 
K-State is also offering several ticket options for military personnel to attend Wildcat football games this season, including a $10 seat for both the Missouri State and UCF contests. The September 25 matchup with Central Florida is also Fort Riley Day at Bill Snyder Family Stadium and Wildcat fans can purchase a $10 ticket to be donated to a Fort Riley soldier. To purchase UCF tickets to be donated to Fort Riley soldiers and their families, call the ticket office at 1-800-221-CATS or visit k-statesports.com.

Less than 3,000 tickets also remain to the 2010 season opener against UCLA and can be purchased for as little as $35. Fans can reserve their seat for one of the most exciting home schedules in recent history by calling the ticket office, visiting the Bramlage Coliseum ticket office or logging on to the new and improved k-statesports.com.
