The 117th Challenge Cup Final kicks off at 1800hrs between 1 Yorkshire Regiment and 30 Signal Regiment. At 1500hrs the Minor Units Final will be between 1 Regiment AAC and 5 Regiment AAC.
The 117th Challenge Cup Final between 1 Yorkshire Regiment (finalists last season) will play 30 Signal Regiment who reached this stage in 2014/15. In those finals both teams were defeated by 7 Regiment RLC and so the Final will ensure that a new name will be added to the prestigious trophy which has been competed for since 1888.
We also welcome our match officials to Aldershot. It has been an excellent period for Army officials again with the highlight being WO2 (QMSI) Andy Halliday being awarded the Army Sports Official of the Year.
Towergate Insurance continue 33 years of sponsorship of the Army Challenge Cup Final and our County Cups competitions. They are our longest ‘serving’ sponsor and we are very grateful for that continued support.
We will be entertained by The Band of the Army Air Corps who formed in 1993 from a nucleus of the former Royal Artillery Alanbrooke Band and volunteers from other Corps and Regiments. The Band of the Army Air Corps deliver the latest Pop, Rock and Jazz styles, whilst retaining the connections to its proud heritage.
Entrance is free and refreshments are available so come along and enjoy an afternoon of competitive football!
