Latics salute the Armed Forces
The military charity, Tickets For Troops, is delighted to announce that Latics will once again support the initiative donating tickets for their home fixtures at Boundary Park 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.
Latics' Commercial Manager Jenny Warburton said: “
"The club is more than happy to work alongside such a great cause and will be looking at collaborating further with ‘tickets for troops’ throughout the season."
