The best way to travel to an away game

Published: 20th February 2024

Football is one of the nation’s greatest assets. Large numbers of both domestic and international fans are travelling to games week on week to watch their favourite football teams.

There's a lot of fans heading to stadiums across the UK which, let’s be honest, aren’t always the most convenient to access via public transport or by car.

A lack of parking spaces, increasing travel ticket prices and poorly planned public transport departures in correspondence with kick-off times is dampening what ought to be an exciting time for all football fans travelling to see their favourite sports teams. Sports coach hire is here to make sports travel across the UK easier and more accessible for all.

Here are 5 reasons why coach travel is the best way to travel to an away day:
  • Comfort - Depart at a time that suits you and your group and enjoy a smooth journey in your guaranteed seat as you arrive at the stadium well in time for kick-off.
  • Pleasantries - We know how exciting a day at the races can be. Why not start and end your day with a bang? Choose between a standard coach, executive coach or VIP coach and enjoy a host of onboard pleasantries such as toilets, kitchen, wi-fi, tables and hot-drinks machine.
  • Convenience - Door-to-door stadium pickups mean you avoid excessive parking fees and long walks from the nearest station to the stadium. With a coach, you no longer miss out on vital game time or post-match celebrations trying to catch the last train home.
  • Environmentally friendly - a coach load of football fans takes up to 50 cars off the road reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Atmosphere - There’s nothing quite like journeying to the match with like-minded supporters. Enjoy the perfect matchday atmosphere on board one of our coaches.

What better way to head to the match than with a group of fellow supporters?
