ATV Motocross and Vet Tix Continue Partnership to Provide
Free Admission to Military Veterans During 2019 Season
Tickets To Be Donated Via Veteran Tickets Foundation
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (November 12, 2018) – The ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX), presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship recognizes the sacrifices made by our service men and women and is pleased to announce the continuation of their partnership with the Veterans Tickets Foundation. This generous effort will provide military veterans with the opportunity to obtain free admission at 8 of the scheduled rounds (excluding Daytona and Ironman Pro only events) of the world’s premier professional and amateur ATV motocross series.
ATV Motocross will donate 40 tickets to Vet Tix for each stop on the 2019 schedule, totaling in 320 across 8 rounds of the series. These tickets will be made available to both active duty and retired service men and women, and their families, at no cost. Each set of tickets will be made available two weeks prior to each respective round of the season, and can be claimed on a first come, first serve basis through VetTix.org.
“The partnership with ATV Motocross has been incredibly rewarding for all the veterans and their families we serve, and we’re grateful to have the chance to continue this initiative for the 2019 season,” said Brandi Shannon, Chief of Community Relations at Veteran Tickets Foundation. “ATV Motocross is a family sport and the donations provide a truly unique opportunity for veterans and their families to share one-of-a-kind experience together.”
Major sports franchises from Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, National Football League, and National Hockey League have also partnered with Vet Tix, as have touring organizations like World Wrestling Entertainment and Professional Bull Riders.
Based in Phoenix, the Veterans Tickets Foundation was founded in 2008 by U.S. Navy veteran Michael Focareto. The organization has been providing free tickets to veterans and active-duty members of the military, and their families, ever since. Over the course of the past decade, the organization has given away well over a million tickets to veterans nationwide.
All active and retired military veterans can create an account on VetTix.org to receive emails and reminders about when the ATVMX tickets become available. More information about Vet Tix can be found at VetTix.org.
