600 FREE TICKETS DONATED TO MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES
It was announced today that The MMA Show Live have partnered with Tickets For Troops to offer free tickets to members of the British Armed Forces.
After initially donating 300 tickets, Tickets For Troops are delighted that The Mixed Martial Arts Show Live have pledged further support for our Armed Forces by donating another 300 tickets to this fantastic event over the weekend of May 12th and 13th at the NEC in Birmingham, taking the total amount of tickets to 600.
The initial 300 tickets proved immensely popular and were all taken up by troops within two days, prompting The MMA Show to double the amount available through the charity.
Mixed Martial Arts has strong ties within the Armed Forces and one of the fighters attending The MMA Show Live is BAMMA British Middleweight Champion, Jack Marshman, who is a serving member of the Armed Forces.
Jack Marshman said “It’s fantastic that the MMA Show Live have partnered with Tickets for Troops to make 600 tickets available. MMA is hugely popular in the forces and I’m sure the troops that have been serving their country in hostile territory will really appreciate the gesture. It will really help the sport continue to grow. I always get great support from all the military whenever I fight, so I can’t wait to host a training session there and say thanks to some of the people that watch and support me.”

Populating a second hall at the NEC in Birmingham alongside The Martial Arts Show Live, The MMA Show Live will consist of five training areas where some of the biggest names in the business will host special group training sessions, a huge stage & screen for Q&A sessions, an autograph zone where fans can meet their favourite fighters and exhibition stands where some of the biggest brands in MMA will be selling merchandise and much, much more.

About Tickets For Troops
Tickets for Troops (TfT) was set up in 2009 to provide members of the Armed Forces with free tickets for major sporting events, theatre performances, music concerts and cultural attractions.
Since launching TfT has been donated over 270,000 tickets and over 111,000 troops have registered on the website
Tickets are available on the TfT website to troops who are currently serving or who have been medically discharged since 2001. The partnership has allowed members of the Armed Forces and their families to escape from the stresses that are often associated with the work they do.
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 Saturdays, Wales vs. Scotland Six Nations Match and Jason Manford.
This initiative has attracted maximum support from a host of Patrons, including Joanna Lumley, Alan Shearer, and Prime Minister’s wife Samantha Cameron.
Troops are encouraged to go online and register at www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk to take advantage of the fantastic tickets available for our Armed Forces.
