THE PLAYERS provides all career military (active duty, Reserve, military retirees and dependents) with complimentary admission to the tournament all week.
All military must bring printed vouchers and photo IDs to the Military Tickets trailers located at any of the tournament gates. At the trailers, vouchers will be exchanged for complimentary tournament tickets for career military and dependents.
