Bobcats Among First NBA Teams to Take Part in Special Online Ticket Program Through GovX
to Extend Specially Priced Tickets to Military & First Responders
March 13, 2014
The Charlotte Bobcats announced today a new multi-year partnership with GovX, the leading website and e-commerce network devoted to serving verified U.S. Armed Forces personnel and government first responders. GovX offers privileged pricing on events, tickets and 20,000+ premium products.
As part of this partnership, GovX will sponsor the color guard presentation prior to each Bobcats home game. GovX will have a special section on Bobcats.com as the two parties have partnered for special ticket pricing for military and first responders. The Bobcats will offer up to 50 percent off select tickets exclusively to U.S. Military personnel and government first responders for select home games. To access this exclusive discount, qualified fans can visit the Bobcats/GovX ticketing page at http://www.nba.com/bobcats/military-first-responders-tickets. Upon selecting the desired game, users who are not already GovX members are directed to a simple online verification page to complete the one-time verification. From there, users proceed with their ticket selection, where the discount is automatically applied. The purchased tickets can then be emailed or downloaded.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with GovX to provide U.S. military personnel and first responders throughout the Carolinas the opportunity to receive exclusive discounts to upcoming Bobcats games,” said Fred Whitfield, President & COO of Bobcats Sports & Entertainment. “We truly appreciate all the sacrifices that these service men and women, along with their families, make in an effort to keep all of us safe.”
As a sincere thank you for their service, GovX has teamed up with the Bobcats to donate 1,000 tickets to local military service members, first responders and their families throughout the 2013-14 NBA season.
“Every day military service members and first responders, along with their families, sacrifice so much for all of the rest of us; it's a special honor to bring them together with NBA teams like the Bobcats to convey the community's collective gratitude for their service," said GovX President and Founder Tony Farwell. "In addition to privileged discounts to one of our nation's most popular sporting events, we have joined with our team partners to donate close to 20,000 NBA tickets to military service members, first responders and their families throughout this NBA season.”
GovX’s proprietary online verification technology allows the Bobcats to easily extend privileged online ticketing and recognition events exclusively to active, reserve, veteran and retired U.S. Military personnel as well as those who serve and protect our communities including police, fire, EMS and related federal, state and local government employees.
