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."
Lord Marland, Chairman of Tickets for Troops said: 'The FA was
one of the first organisations to support Tickets For Troops and
they have been incredibly generous with their ticket donations.
Football is a hugely popular sport amongst our Armed Forces and the
tickets are always very sort after. I want to thank The FA for
being one of our leading ticket providers, and for their continued
support of the charity
