Football fans in the Armed Forces could be in with a chance to watch the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Andorra at Wembley Stadium thanks to a military charity which is offering free tickets to the match.

The Football Association (FA) is supporting the Tickets For Troops charity by offering 500 free tickets for this Sunday’s game.

England return to Wembley to take on Andorra following Thursday night’s convincing 4-0 victory over Hungary which takes the Three Lions to the top of their group with the maximum 12 points from four games.

England have beaten Andorra in all four of their prior meetings, and take them on again at 5pm (BST) on Sunday.

It is hoped that part of the charity’s ticket allocation will be taken up by the Colchester-based 16 Air Assault Brigade and its support team, which led the evacuation of British nationals from Kabul in Operation Pitting.

A spokesperson for Tickets For Troops (www.ticketfortroops.org.uk) said: “The FA has been an unstinting and generous supporter of our Armed Forces since our launch in 2009.

“The opportunity for members of the military and a loved one to see England at Wembley is a real privilege and tickets to watch England is a fantastic way to recognise their sacrifice in keep us safe and secure. We are very grateful.”
