By / MLB.com
FLUSHING, N.Y., May 6, 2014 - The New York Mets and GovX.com today announced the launch of an online verification ticketing service exclusive to members of the U.S. Military and first responders providing specially priced Mets tickets to these deserving individuals.
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 Mets 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.
The Mets will offer up to 50% off select tickets to U.S. Military service members (active, reserve, veteran and retired) and first responders.
To access this exclusive ticket discount for select regular season home games, qualified fans can visit the Mets/GovX ticketing page at www.GovX.com/Mets. 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 respective discount is automatically applied. The purchased tickets can then be emailed and downloaded.
"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 New York Mets to convey the community's collective gratitude for their service," said Tony Farwell, GovX.com executive chairman and co-founder.
GovX.com is proud to sponsor the team's Military Mondays initiative and will donate hundreds of tickets to local military service members and first responders throughout the season.
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.
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.
