Major sports franchises from Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, National Football League, and National Hockey League have also partnered with Vet Tix, as have touring organizations like World Wrestling Entertainment and Professional Bull Riders.

Based in Phoenix, the Veterans Tickets Foundation was founded in 2008 by U.S. Navy veteran Michael Focareto. The organization has been providing free tickets to veterans and active-duty members of the military, and their families, ever since. Over the course of the past decade, the organization has given away well over a million tickets to veterans nationwide.

All active and retired military veterans can create an account on to receive emails and reminders about when the GNCC tickets become available. More information about Vet Tix can be found at
