A total of 1,000 free tickets will be supplied to services personnel for the climax to the Engage Super League season at Old Trafford on Saturday October 2, a match which has always ranks as one of the highlights of the sporting calendar.
RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood said: The Grand Final is a magnificent occasion that showcases the very best in club Rugby League and we are therefore delighted to be able to share this event with 1,000 of our dedicated service men and women and demonstrate our appreciation for their commitment and work across the world.
Raleigh Addington, Operations Director of Tickets For Troops, commented: “Tickets For Troops is extremely grateful to the RFL for being one of our most generous ticket donors.
It is a huge boost to the morale of the troops to have their commitment and dedication recognised in this way and we are thrilled to have the support from so many organisations.”

It has been given over 200,000 tickets by organisations wanting to show their support of the Armed Forces. Since its launch over 65,000 troops have registered for the scheme.
