Teenagers in Dallas can receive free tickets to local sports games, including the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks. This is a part of a new program from Mayor Eric Johnson and the Dallas Sports Commission.
This week, the mayor’s office announced the “Mayor’s Youth Sports Ticket Program.”
Teens aged 12-17, who reside in Dallas, qualify to sign up for the iniative with a parent or guardian. Afterwards, they will be notified when the free tickets are available. The teen who registered and their chaperone will receive the complimentary tickets.
Those involved in the program include the Cowboys, Mavericks, Dallas Sidekicks, Dallas Stars, Dallas Wings, FC Dallas, and SMU. Other participants include Dallas Baptist, University of Dallas, University of Texas at Dallas, and the Texas Motorplex in Ennis.
Teens can receive tickets to one-time events, as well. This includes the World Food Championship, the First Responder Bowl, and the NCAA Women’s Final Four.
Mayor Johnson’s office says that the program is designed to “include sports fans who might otherwise not be able to attend their hometown teams’ events.”
