Free travel initiative kicks off for Leeds United fixture and will be available for five matches this season
Grosvenorcasinos.com has announced it will provide free travel for Fulham fans heading to the Club’s away match at Leeds United – a midweek round trip on Tuesday 15 August of nearly 500 miles.
The Club’s newly-announced Main Team Partner, has acted to help supporters tackle five of this season’s trickiest away days, specifically chosen due to factors including distance from London, as well as the day and time of the fixture.
Grosvenor Casinos will also provide free travel for the Boxing Day clash at Cardiff City, as well as long haul, Tuesday night trips to Sheffield United (21 November) and Bristol City (20 February).
The fifth fixture will be confirmed later this season with the #FollowFulhamAway initiative set to cover more than 1,500 miles and get more supporters on the road as the club bids for promotion back to the Premier League.
Supporters who have already purchased coach tickets for the Leeds match will be refunded and those yet to purchase a match ticket will be offered complimentary return coach travel, which can be secured online, by phone, or at the ticket office.
Aaron O’Sullivan, Head of Marketing (Digital) of grosvenorcasinos.com, said: “We’re thrilled that one of our first acts as sponsors of Fulham is to provide free travel for the dedicated and passionate fans making the journey to and from Leeds, when trains don’t run late enough to return to London after the game. We want to make sure the fans benefit as much as possible from our partnership and hope that #FollowFulhamAway can help spur the team on in its promotion push.”
Tom Cairney, Captain of Fulham FC, said: “The Club is extremely grateful that grosvenor casinos will so generously provide free travel to our fans heading to Leeds and for other key away days this season. Our supporters always turn up in great numbers and bring their singing voices with them, so we hope this initiative will help give the players an extra boost as we embark on another exciting season.”
