Rovers will once again support the charity 'Tickets For Troops' by donating tickets for games at Ewood Park this season.

The military charity, which provides free tickets for sporting, musical and theatrical events to members of the Armed Forces, has had a long-standing partnership with Rovers and the Football League since the scheme was established in 2009.

Over 85,000 football tickets have been donated to the charity since 2009 and last season alone saw in excess of 35,000 tickets distributed to servicemen and women across the UK.

Currently, over 19,000 tickets have been donated by Football League clubs for the 2013-14 season. 

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 www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk.

Tickets For Troops chairman, Lord Marland, 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 Blackburn Rovers have wanted to demonstrate their support and appreciation in such a generous way."
