George Washington University’s athletic department is offering free tickets for men’s and women’s basketball games to federal government employees affected by the government shutdown.
According to The GW Hachet, federal employees can show their government ID at the Smith Center or call the school to get the tickets.
GW is one of three teams in the DMV area providing free tickets to athletic contests, Yahoo Sports reported Tuesday.
The Hachet reported that George Mason is also offering federal employees free tickets to men’s and women’s basketball games. The Capital City Go-Go, a G-League team for the Washington Wizards, gave free tickets to federal employees at their home game Tuesday and will also provide complimentary tickets to their home game Saturday night against the Long Island Nets.
