Members of the Armed Forces can gain free admission to Stalybridge Celtic’s home fixtures in the Evo-Stik Premier Division this season.

The initiative, dubbed Tickets for Troops, provides free tickets to members of the Armed Forces for a variety of sporting, musical and cultural events. The service offers serving personnel and those medically discharged from the forces since 2001, the well-deserved opportunity to enjoy an event of their choice with their friends and families.

Ten tickets will be available per game for current and ex-servicemen from the Army, RAF and Royal Navy.

To claim your ticket, you must book through www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk. The site requires you to register prior to booking with personal details including Rank, Base, MOD number, Date entered service, etc, so make sure you have it all to hand.

Robert Lupton, Tickets for Troops, said: “Firstly, many thanks for the kind offer of tickets for our servicemen and women. The Evostick League looks to be a very exciting league this season. The North West has a large percentage of current and ex-service personnel, and we hope that Stalybridge Celtic FC can benefit from this kind gesture within you local community”.

Mike Smith, Stalybridge Celtic Community Development Officer, said: “It’s great that we can make these tickets available for members of our armed services who work so hard to keep us all safe, we look forward to seeing some of them throughout the season and hope they all enjoy their visit to Bower Fold”.
