    the difference between "to" and "for"

    While teaching ,I met a problem, that is, in our text , there 's a sentence: You could give him a ticket to a ball game, while in another unit, I found the sentence: I'll give you a ticket for today's ball game. I don't understand the difference between"to" and "for". Is there anybody who can help me? Many thanks.

    In this context, there is no difference.
    A ticket to a ball game is a ticket for a ball game.

    A ticket to attend an event is a ticket for attendance at an event.
    A ticket to enter is a ticket for entrance.
