Virginia Beach-based ADS, Inc. supports ticket giveaway for 3rd straight year.

NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University’s November 5th football game against Marshall is Military Appreciation Day—an annual celebration of active duty and military veterans.

Thanks to a 3-year-long partnership between ODU and Virginia Beach-based government contractor ADS Inc., hundreds of veterans and active duty military service members will see the game for free.

And it’s not just this game. The annual donation from ADS to ODU means active duty and retired military service members can get up to four free tickets to any football, basketball, baseball game or wrestling match all year long.

Service members active and retired will be honored during the November 5th Military Appreciation Day game, which will begin with a thrilling pre-game flyover of two F-18 Hornets.

“It’s one small way for ADS to give back but we know it makes a big difference to the veterans, service members and family members who want to enjoy a game,” Wallace said. “I don’t know of anyone who deserves it more than our troops.”

We’re always looking for meaningful ways to give back to our community. Tickets for Troops has been a great opportunity for us because it brings the excitement of ODU athletics together with our military who give and do so much,” said Jason Wallace, CEO of ADS, Inc. “More than a third of our employees are former military or military family members, so this is a very personal source of pride for us.”
To get free tickets to any men or women’s ODU game, a service member simply has to visit, click the ODU Athletics icon, then click the “Tickets for Troops” button and use the promo code TROOPS.

The supply of free tickets is limited per game and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets become available two weeks prior to any game. A military ID is required and must be presented at the venue entrance.
