It’s November, which means we are in the heart of the college football season. On Saturdays (and occasionally weeknights), university stadiums across the nation fill with tens of thousands of fans. That could be you. And even if you aren’t a football fan, we’ve highlighted a few of the many other opportunities that Vet Tixers can take advantage of to get out in the community with friends and family.

Every week, in cities across the United States, thousands of tickets are available to veterans, service members, and family members of those killed in action, enabling them go to major sports games, concerts, and a whole host of other ticketed events. And all the tickets are free—except for a very small delivery fee—from the nonprofit Veteran Tickets Foundation, Vet Tix.

Below are 13 of the hundreds of events available at VetTix.org. Every event included on this list has at least 100 donated tickets available for our veteran and military members.
