Padres Veterans Appreciation Cards

The Padres currently offer an "appreciation price" of $6.00 off tickets priced at $14.00 or more for all active duty military and their dependents, retired military and current DoD employees who possess a valid DoD issued ID card. This offer is for all regular season home games.

The Padres Veterans' Appreciation card (PVAC) is intended to be issued to military Veterans who served in the armed forces, but did not make the military a career - and therefore do not carry a DoD issued Card.

To qualify for this PVAC an individual must be a Veteran of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, or the U. S. Coast Guard, and show proof of such service. Membership in any officially sanctioned military organization such as The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), etc,) suffices as proof of Veterans' status for the purpose of issuing a PVAC card to an individual.

The PVAC entitles the holder to the same $6.00 off regular season tickets as offered to the active duty and their dependents, retired military, and DoD employees. To purchase tickets with the PVAC the holder simply presents the PVAC with a picture ID card (i.e. Driver's License, VA Medical Card, etc.) at the box office windows at Petco Park.

Like the DoD issued ID card, the PVAC may be used to purchase up to 19 tickets at the box office windows for a single game. To purchase tickets for a group of 20 or more tickets with a PVAC, the holder of the card must go through the Padres Group Sales Office to purchase the tickets in advance of the game.
