Rovers donate tickets to Tickets for Troops
Bristol Rovers are delighted to announce their continued support of military charity Tickets for Troops.
The club will continue to donate tickets for our home fixtures at the Memorial Stadium this season.
Tickets For Troops, which provides free tickets for sporting, musical and theatrical events to members of the Armed Forces, has had a longstanding partnership with The Football League since the charity was established in 2009 providing thousands of football tickets to service personnel.
Over 17,500 tickets have currently been donated by Football League clubs across the UK for the 2012/13 season.
Bristol Rovers FC spokesperson said: ““We are delighted to be involved with this fantastic initiative for another year.
“We are really glad to be able to give something back to the brave Gasheads who serve their country.”
Gavin Megaw, Director of External Affairs at The Football League, said: “Football League clubs have a longstanding close relationship with the Armed Forces, and it is great to see Bristol Rovers FC supporting Tickets For Troops in this way.
"The charity is a fantastic way of giving something back to our servicemen and women and The Football League is proud to be making a contribution to that effort.”
Tickets For Troops Director of Operations, Ross Barden said: "The men and women of Her Majesty's Armed Forces are doing such an extraordinary job during these difficult times and it is fantastic that Bristol Rovers FC and The Football League have wanted to demonstrate their support and appreciation in such a generous way."
England captain and Tickets For Troops Patron, Steven Gerrard MBE, said: “Young men and women are risking their lives every day and Tickets for Troops is a very simple way of respecting their courage and their sacrifices.”
