Bookings can involve day trips, short weekends and occasional week long touring holidays

FTS have provided anything from one coach for an away game to more than 100 for a cup final

FTS plan the routes, schedules stops at service stations, advises on timings and liaises with host teams to arrange coach parking and pick up and drop off points.

The challenge

Coach travel is often the primary method for football fans travelling to away fixtures across the country.

First Travel Solutions (FTS) has supported football travel for many years and has long standing contracts with Blackburn Rovers FC and a supporter’s association from Burnley FC.

The solution

For both clubs FTS works with trip organisers to understand how many fans are expected to travel and provides the right number of mini buses and coaches.

Bookings can involve return day trips, short weekends for the further away fixtures and on occasion week long touring holidays as the clubs complete pre-season training across Europe.

The result

The partnerships have been running for 10 years and in that time, FTS have provided anything from one coach for an away game to more than 100 for a cup final at either Wembley or the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

FTS plan the routes, schedules stops at service stations, advises on timings and liaises with host teams to arrange coach parking and pick up and drop off points.

Accessible coaches are always available and utilised as needed.
