THE Ospreys will show their support for troops by giving all serving Armed Forces members the chance to see them take on Edinburgh at the Liberty Stadium for free.
The club have designated the RaboDirect PRO12 home game against the Scottish club on Friday, February 22 as Heroes Day.
They will pay tribute to the brave men and women who serve in the UK's Armed Forces.
To mark the special occasion, the region has sent out an open invitation to all serving members to attend the Liberty Stadium for a must-win game.

Heroes have also been invited along for the evening and a bucket collection will take place to raise much-needed funds for their good cause.
Andrew Hore, Ospreys chief operations officer, said: "We are delighted to be able to host Heroes Day at the Liberty Stadium.
"Among the thousands of soldiers, sailors and RAF personnel proudly serving their country, many in some extremely dangerous conditions, there are a significant number of local men and women who deserve recognition from the community around them.
"This is an opportunity for all the Ospreys fans to show our troops how proud we are of them and thank them for the dedication and sacrifice they make on our behalf.
"We hope to be joined by representatives from the different branches of the Armed Forces and more details will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
"It also gives us enormous pleasure to be able to welcome Help for Heroes to the game. It is a charity that does vital work across the UK in aiding and assisting our troops, so we are happy to be working alongside them on Heroes Day at the Liberty Stadium to help a fantastic charity to raise both money and awareness for this worthwhile cause."
Help for Heroes raises money to support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.
The charity allocates money raised to fund direct projects, such as the establishment of Personnel Recovery Centres (PRCtrs) across the UK and support other service charities.
A number of additional guests and further activities will be confirmed over the next two weeks in the build-up to the game.
