Blue Light Day v Cheltenham 

U’s show support for our public services  

23 February 2024

Oxford United are excited to announce that we will hold our Blue Light Day when Cheltenham Town visit OX4 on Saturday 9th March, as we show our appreciation and support for our public services.

On the day, we’ll be welcoming The Army, The Royal Air Force, The Navy, Thames Valley Police, South Central Ambulance, Oxford Fire and Rescue, and Oxford University Hospitals to engage with supporters ahead of kick-off.  

There will be lots of activity going on around the ground that will showcase vehicles, equipment, and personnel from various departments of public service.  

Thames Valley Police will be bringing two police horses and a large Horse Box, a Marked Mini, Marked Vivaro Van, and a Marked Transit Van for supporters to check out. They will also be offering crime prevention advice, and the opportunity to look at some police equipment.  

South Central Ambulance will have an ambulance for supporters to explore. Accompanied by 999 Ted, their fluffy SCAS mascot, the team on the day will be offering CPR demonstrations and providing information on who they are.  

Oxford Fire and Rescue will have a fire bike demonstration for supporters to watch as well as other demonstrations and activities. 

Oxford University Hospitals, based in the Exhibition Bar in the South Stand, will be providing FREE blood pressure checks to supporters, general and sexual health advice, as well as an origami workshop.

The Army will be bringing large military vehicles, a bomb disposal truck and robot, and a range of equipment they use on deployment for you to explore from helmets to camouflage webbing. 

The Navy’s Sea Cadets will be present to meet with supporters and offer the opportunity to explore some of the equipment they’ll have with them on the day.

RAF Cadets will act as our Guard of Honour to welcome the teams to the pitch before the Naval Commander presents the match ball to the referee before kick-off. 

Ticket promotions have been running in conjunction with Blue Light Tickets to ensure as many serving personnel can enjoy the football in March.
