SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Fleet Week San Diego and SDSU Athletics have teamed to once again provide significantly discounted tickets (in select areas) to all SDSU Football home games in 2016—just $8 and available at all MWR/MCCS ticket offices. Each home game will honor a branch of the military, including the Fleet Week Football Classic on Saturday, September 10, SDSU vs. Cal.
"With the strong presence of the military in San Diego, San Diego State University is thrilled to once again partner on the Aztec Football military voucher program, inviting our local military to take in a great product on the field, for a discounted price.
