08/08/2013 - Second season with Saints’ supporters for Coliseum Coaches
Coliseum Coaches have been named as Southampton FC’s chosen partner for supporter travel for a second consecutive season
With a legion of dedicated fans behind them the Saints march into their second consecutive Premier League season this month, and once again their traveling army of supporters can get to away matches in style and comfort.
Coliseum Coaches, the award winning Southampton based family run firm, has been named as the chosen partner for supporter travel for a second season.
Southampton FC's fantastic performance on the field last season means there's sure to be a clamour for tickets to away matches for the 2013/14 season. There's 19 scheduled Premier League matches away from home, with thousands of miles of travel for dedicated supporters. The first game of the campaign is at West Bromwich Albion on August 17th, so fans need to start making plans for getting to the Midlands now.
The club is convinced that Coliseum Coaches offers the best value, comfort and safety and knows fans will enjoy the hassle free travel experience too. There's a direct link from the Saints website for online booking, with convenient pick up points on match days. Supporters travel in modern, luxury coaches right to the gates of the ground. It's often cheaper and certainly less stressful than driving, and much friendlier for the environment too.
Dominic Fawcett, Chief Commercial Officer at Southampton Football Club said "Southampton Football Club is pleased to announce its continuing partnership with Coliseum Coaches as its chosen coach provider for supporters' away travel. It is important for our supporters to enjoy comfort and style when heading to away games. Coliseum's high quality vehicles and excellent customer service will provide them with great value, comfortable and hassle free travel when following the club to future away matches."
Mark Pitter, General Manager of Coliseum Coaches said "We're proud to be the driving force behind Saints away games travel, and know that providing a hassle free journey for fans is great preparation for the big games. Once again we'll be making it easy for supporters to travel in style as they follow their heroes to football grounds across the country."
Tickets for return travel to West Bromwich Albion are £20 per adult and £15 per child, making the cost of the journey much more competitive than taking the train.
Ticket prices for other away games will vary, depending on the destination and distance to be traveled. Sales for away game travel will close at midday on the Friday before any Saturday, Sunday or Monday game. Tickets for games on other days will close no later than midday on the day before the game.
