Sun Devil Athletics, in conjunction with Fox Sports Arizona and KTAR, is proud to announce our Salute to our Troops. On Sept. 11 for the game against NAU at 7 p.m., ASU and its media partners will donate a ticket to the Veteran Tickets Foundation for every ticket purchased. The Veteran Tickets Foundation is a program dedicated to giving back to those who gave by providing tickets to athletics events to active duty military, veterans and/or their family members.

"As a community owned asset, it is our pleasure to partner with the Veteran Tickets Foundation in order to thank our troops and their families," said Lisa Love, Vice President for University Athletics, "I hope that our community embraces this program and we are able to fill Sun Devil Stadium with those that have given so much to defend our freedom."

You can be a part of the Sun Devils Salute to the Troops by purchasing a ticket for the ASU vs. Northern Arizona game on Sept. 11. Sun Devil Athletics has guaranteed a minimum of 1,000 tickets to the Veteran Tickets Foundation but will match every ticket purchased with a donated ticket.

"Veteran Tickets Foundation is both honored and humbled that ASU has chosen us to participate in the Salute to Our Troops game on September 11," said Michael Focareto, President and CEO of Vet Tix. "As both a graduate of ASU and a Veteran, this is one of the single most important milestones and partnerships I could have ever wished for this foundation to achieve."

You can help support this program by purchasing your tickets today. Single game tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased online, by calling 480/727-0000 or in person at the Sun Devil Ticket Office.

The Sun Devil Ticket Office is located on the south end of Sun Devil Stadium and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. When purchasing your tickets, please use the promotion code HERO.

Help us honor those who serve our country. Join ASU in giving back to those who gave today.
