“Military Appreciation Day at THE PLAYERS has quickly become a tradition that our players, sponsors, fans and staff look forward to as a way to pay our respects to our country’s service members and their families,” said Jared Rice, Executive Director of THE PLAYERS Championship. “Hosting an act of the size and scope of The Chainsmokers shows the growth in status and stature of THE PLAYERS, and we fully expect Tuesday’s practice round and Military Appreciation Day tickets to sell out before the event. The stadium at the 17th hole is going to be electric as we combine the best players in the world and the pageantry of our Military Appreciation Ceremony with one of the top music groups in the world, all while generating impact for those who selflessly stand to protect and defend our freedom.”
