BFPA committee member and British Serviceman, Sgt Peter Briggs who is currently serving with the Royal Military Police in Sennelager, Germany, has helped to organise the Vintage Clarets participation in the event.

A percentage of money raised during the sale of shirts worn by the Vintage Clarets after the tournament will be given to the Help for Heroes Charity.
