Dundee to give away free match tickets to all service personnel

Roarie Deacon models Dundee's season third kit which will benefit military charity SSSAFA

Dundee will be hoping for an army of supporters when they return to Premiership action against Kilmarnock at Dens on Saturday.

The Dark Blues have joined up with Tickets for Troops for the game against a rejuvenated Ayrshire outfit.

All service personnel are able to apply for tickets for themselves and their family, and entry for the game will be free of charge as part of Dundee FC’s support of the military.

The match will also see Dundee wear their bespoke designed third kit, which incorporates a camouflage print, as their charity partner this season is SSAFA. Part of the sale of every camouflage shirt will be donated to the local SSAFA branch.

Service personnel both former and current can apply for tickets on the Tickets for Troops site or at the Ticket Office at Dens Park with relevant military ID.

Meanwhile, Glen Kamara became the 56th Dundee player to represent his nation when he made his full Finland debut in a 3-0 win over Estonia in midweek.

The midfielder has been in a number of national squads recently after an impressive start to his time at Dens since joining in the summer.

He played 90 minutes against the Estonians and is due back at Dens Park at the start of the week.

Meanwhile, Saturday’s opponents Killie are running the rule over former English Premier League ace Youssouf Mulumbu.

The DR Congo star has been training at Rugby Park during the international break.

Mulumbu, who kicked-off his career at Paris St Germain before starring at West Brom, is a free agent having been released by Norwich City in the summer.
