Ryder Cup supporting Tickets for Troops
September 30, 2010

Tickets For Troops has teamed up with the PGA to provide tickets to The 2010 Ryder Cup being held at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales. This Sunday servicemen and women have been offered 15 free tickets to attend the third day of this showpiece event between Europe and the United States. The Ryder Cup is regarded as one of the world's largest sporting events, and the highlight of the golfing calendar.

Chairman Lord Marland said: "Tickets for Troops has benefited from a great wave of generosity from our ticket donors and patrons who have wanted to demonstrate their support and appreciation of the dedication and commitment of the marvellous men and women from our forces."
Tickets For Troops was set up last year to provide members of the Armed Forces with free tickets for major sporting events including football, horse racing, rugby, darts and cricket matches as well as theatre performances, music concerts and cultural attractions. Since launching it has been donated over 200,000 tickets and over 65,000 troops have registered on the website -
Tickets For Troops has teamed up with a wide range of organisations and has been able to offer free tickets to a huge number of high profile events, recently these have included tickets for The Open at St Andrews, as well as the Silverstone Grand Prix.
This initiative has attracted maximum support from a host of Patrons, including Joanna Lumley, Alan Shearer, and PMs wife Samantha Cameron.
Keen golfer and patron Gary Lineker said "This is a terrific idea and it's important that we show respect for what the soldiers are doing out there and the sacrifice they have made."
Troops are encouraged to go online and register at to take advantage of the fantastic tickets available for our Armed Forces.
