The Babcock Trophy is here again and we're getting rather excited about being part of the afternoons celebrations once again. Last years Army v Navy match was a huge success and the party in the bar was tremendous fun indeed! Support for the match has increased significantly over the years and this year is set to be better than ever, with a record breaking crowd. In fact, the http://www.armynavymatch.org.uk/ website has already reported that they've totally sold out of tickets. Given the fact that Twickenham Stadium has a total capacity of 82,000, that's really quite an achievement!
This year, we'll be back in the Ruck & Maul bar with Twickenham regulars, The Indiestructibles! The Indiestructibles high energy repertoire of contemporary indie rock covers always hits the mark with Twickenham crowds and it seems the Army & Navy supporters are no exception. Well what's not to like when you have a fantastic band with a cracking repertoire?
The Army v Navy rugby match is one of the annual hi-lights on the military sporting events calendar with a following that compares to a major International match. Proceeds from the match go to the Army Rugby Union Trust (registered charity no. 245517) and the Royal Navy and Royal Marine Rugby Union Trust (Registered charity no 249182) and this year, The Royal British Legion has been selected as the Charity of the day.
This event will be broadcast live by Sky Sports and Forces TV.
