Owls join forces with Tickets for Troops

18 July 2023

Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to once again join forces with Ticket for Troops for the 2023/24 Championship season.

The military charity, which provides free tickets for sporting, musical and theatrical events to members of the Armed Forces, has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with the Owls and The Football League since the scheme was established in 2009, seeing thousands of personnel visit Hillsborough over the years.

Over 300,000 football tickets have been donated to the charity and last season alone saw in excess of 25,500 distributed to servicemen and women across the UK.

Sheffield Wednesday General Manager Alastair Wilson said: “It’s been a pleasure to back the scheme for all these years and I am delighted that for the upcoming season hundreds of servicemen and women will be able to take in the Hillsborough atmosphere once again.

“These people risk their lives each and every day and it’s a fantastic way of saying thank you for their continued service.

“As well as the Tickets for Troops scheme we also offer a concessionary based Season Ticket as well as Membership packages, giving discounts for home matches.”

Tickets for Troops Director of Operations Evie Blades added: “Every Monday during the football season the TFT team come to work and find an in-box full of photos from the weekend. Some of our favourites are seeing our members taking their children to their first matches.

“It's wonderful to be a part of those special memories and we can't do it without our incredible partners. Sheffield Wednesday have partnered with us for over a decade now, thank you so much from us and all our troops who share a day out at Hillsborough with their loved ones.”

Members of the Armed Forces and those who have been medically discharged from the services since 2001 can book tickets via the charity’s website by clicking HERE
