free_kicksThe tickets have kindly been donated to Free Kicks Foundation by Talk Sport presenter and Posh Fan Adrian Durham and Jonnie Lewis

Last season, many deaf children and their families enjoyed the free tickets to the football.

The three tickets are in the lower-tier of the Family Stand and provide a great view of the whole pitch and especially the goal-mouth action in front of the Peterborough end.

If you’d like to join in the fun, please fill in the form below and we will be in touch!
