With a Padres Veteran's Appreciation Card (PVAC), the San Diego Padres currently offer a "Veterans Discount" of 25% off any ticket in the ballpark, plus 50% off any ticket on Military Sundays. This offer is based on seating availability (excludes Opening Day, Lexus Home Plate Club, All-You-Can-Eat Seats and any other all-inclusive seating areas).
The Padres Veterans' Appreciation card (PVAC) is intended to be issued to military Veterans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, but did not make the military a career - and therefore do not carry a DOD issued ID Card.
To qualify for a 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 at one of the 5 locations listed below. Membership in any officially sanctioned military organization such as The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), etc., also serves as proof of Veterans' status for the purpose of issuing a PVAC card to an individual.
The PVAC entitles the holder to the same discounts off regular season tickets as offered to active duty, dependents and retired military. To purchase tickets with the PVAC, the holder simply presents the PVAC with a picture ID card 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 these tickets in advance of the game.
