Cricket Tickets For Troops

  • 11 of Britain’s First Class County Cricket Clubs, the MCC and NatWest Bank pledge thousands of tickets to our soldiers, sailors and airmen;

  • Offer include tickets for Friends Life T20, Clydesdale Bank CB40, LV=CC, npower Test and Natwest Series fixtures.

The charity Tickets For Troops is to offer servicemen and women thousands of free tickets to a number of cricket matches across Britain. Eleven First Class County Cricket Clubs and the MCC have linked up with Tickets For Troops to offer troops free tickets to this summer’s domestic and international cricket programme.

Highlights of this summer's tickets include England's test matches against Sri Lanka and India at Cardiff, Edgbaston, Trent Bridge, and Lords and tickets to all the One Day Internationals. Tickets For Troops have also been donated 100 tickets for the Inter Services Twenty20 at Lords.

Tickets For Troops was set up in 2009 to provide members of the Armed Forces with top tickets to a variety of sporting, musical and cultural events. Recent events have included , the FA Cup Semi-Finals and the National Music Awards. It has been donated over 250,000 tickets and nearly 90,000 troops have registered to take advantage of the scheme.

Patron Sir Ian Botham said: “Let’s get behind our troops, let’s give them some support and let’s show them just how much we appreciate the dangerous job they do for us.”
