ARLINGTON, TX and SAN DIEGO - The Texas Rangers and GovX.com today announced the launch of its online verification ticketing service exclusive to members of the U.S. Military and first responders providing specially priced Rangers tickets to these deserving individuals for the 2014 baseball season. GovX.com is the leading e-commerce site devoted to serving verified members of the U.S. Armed Forces (active, reserve, veteran and retired), law enforcement personnel, first responders and related government employees by offering exclusive, significant savings on sports and event ticketing and 40,000-plus premium products. GovX.com's proprietary online verification technology allows the Rangers to easily extend privileged online ticketing and recognition events exclusively to U.S. Military service members, law enforcement personnel, first responders and related government employees, along with their families.
GovX.com is proud to partner with the Rangers to step up in a meaningful way to thank and honor those who protect and serve our country and communities. In addition to offering a special ticket program and recognition events for our military and local first responders, GovX.com and the Rangers will be working closely to create an enduring connection with this deserving group.
"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 the Rangers to convey the community's collective gratitude for their service," said Tony Farwell, GovX.com executive chairman and co-founder.
"The Texas Rangers are honored to join GovX.com in recognizing and thanking military service members and first responders," said Joe Januszewski, Rangers Executive Vice President, Business Partnerships and Development. "These individuals mean so much to our country and our communities and we look forward to hosting them at Globe Life Park in Arlington this summer."
GovX.com and the Rangers have partnered to bring U.S. Military service members, law enforcement personnel, first responders and related government employees up to 45% off regular priced tickets to all Rangers home games.
To access this exclusive ticket discount, qualified fans can visit the Rangers/GovX military or first responder ticketing pages at texasrangers.com/military or texasrangers.com/firstresponder, respectively. Upon selecting the desired game, users who are not already GovX.com 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 and downloaded.
The GovX.com online verification system is fast, accurate and simple to use. Once verified, users enjoy significant savings on sports and event ticketing and thousands of products and services offered exclusively to them. To date, more than three million service men and women have access to the GovX.com online discounts, content and community.
GovX.com is also proud to be the presenting sponsor for the Rangers' Military Appreciation Night on May 10 and the Rangers' Law Enforcement Appreciation Night on July 25 at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
In addition to the ticket discount and recognition events, this partnership will include specials on officially licensed merchandise through the MLB.com Shop as well as MLB.TV, the #1 sports streaming product.
