The wait for the next World Cup may be another four years, but international soccer continues, including two upcoming games here in the United States. And for current and retired members of the military, attending these matches can be affordable.
Manchester United, the British Premiere League team, will play AS Roma in Denver on Saturday and Inter Milan in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday as a part of the pre-season International Champions Cup tournament. The club announced Wednesday that they are teaming up with govx.com to provide free and discounted tickets to members of the armed services for both games.
Govx.com provides discounted clothing, tickets and a host of other goods and services to military and other government personnel.
The ticket offer is a part of Manchester United’s new “United for Heroes” program, an initiative to “give something back to the local communities that we visit” by recognizing “those people who dedicate their lives to serving their country,” the club’s Managing Director Richard Arnold said in a press release.
Some tickets for each match will be available for free, with the remaining tickets available at a 25 percent discount. They are available through govx.com or at stadiums on matchday with appropriate identification, according to Manchester United.
