King's Lynn Town will give free admission to members of the armed forces when Altrincham visit the Walks in a National League North fixture.
The Linnets have chosen the 3pm kick-off against Alrincham on November 2 as it is the closest home game to Remembrance Sunday.
Members of the armed forces will simply need to show a valid ID card at the turnstiles.
King's Lynn Town head of media, Mark Hearle said: "We thought it'd be a nice touch to show our appreciation, so they can just show their ID and enjoy the game. The main thing is to remember the fallen and we'll have poppy sellers around the ground raising some money."
Mr Hearle said the club was yet to decide on whether to make shirts featuring the Poppy Appeal logo that could be auctioned online, as it has done in the past.
