MIAMI and SAN DIEGO - The Miami Marlins and GovX.com today announced the launch of the first online verification ticketing service exclusive to members of the U.S. Military, law enforcement personnel and first responders providing specially priced Marlins tickets to this deserving group. GovX.com is the leading website devoted to serving verified members of the U.S. Armed Forces (active, guard, 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+ premium products. GovX.com's proprietary online verification technology allows the Marlins to easily extend privileged online ticketing and recognition events exclusively to U.S. Military personnel and first responders, along with their families.
GovX.com is proud to partner with the Marlins 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 Marlins 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 Marlins to convey the community's collective gratitude for their service," said GovX Executive Chairman and Founder Tony Farwell.
Marlins President David Samson added, "The Marlins, in conjunction with GovX, are pleased to extend this special offer to the men and women who dedicate their lives to serve and protect others. After recently completing our fifth overseas troops visit, we feel this was the next step to show our appreciation to military service members, first responders and their families."
GovX.com and the Marlins have partnered to bring U.S. Military service members and first responders "Super Hero Mondays," offering these deserving individuals each up to four free tickets to every Marlins Monday home game, except Opening Day. Every Super Hero Monday, GovX.com will also sponsor an in-game recognition of a military service member, a local first responder and law enforcement personnel who will each get to invite a guest to watch pre-game batting practice. Beyond that, for all other home games, members of the U.S. Military and first responders get 50% off regular priced tickets to weekday (Monday-Thursday) home games for the 2014 season.
To access this exclusive discount, qualified fans can visit the Marlins/GovX ticketing page at marlins.com/govx. 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.
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, MLBAM's out-of-market live video streaming subscription product.
