Club Offers Free Tickets To Emergency Service Staff and Armed Forces For Grimsby Town Fixture
Blackpool Football Club is dedicating its Sky Bet League Two fixture against Grimsby Town to the work of those in the emergency services.
The game at Bloomfield Road, to be played on Saturday 8 April, will be known as 'Services Saturday', with the club offering free match tickets to those in the police, ambulance service, fire service and NHS in Lancashire.
The blue light offer, which also extends to those currently serving in the Armed Forces, is in place as a thank-you to those who ensure public safety and health on a daily basis, enforcing the law, protecting lives and dealing with medical emergencies.
"Those in the emergency services and armed forces show incredible determination, dedication and courage every day, even in the face of adversity. Their swift actions save lives and protect people from harm," Blackpool FC Chief Executive Alex Cowdy said.
"This gesture is our way of showing appreciation for those who work tirelessly for the benefit of others."
To obtain tickets for the fixture, please visit the Blackpool FC ticket office with a relevant ID badge or card by 5pm on Friday 7 April.
