Everton and SportPesa offer coach service to Burnley

Tuesday, 27 February, 2018 9comments  |  Jump to last

Everton and the Club's Main Partner SportPesa are offering supporters FREE travel from Goodison Park on official Club coaches for the upcoming Premier League fixture at Burnley on Saturday 3 March.

Blues fans travelling to Turf Moor for the game this weekend face potential travel complications due to strike action planned for Saturday by Arriva Rail North (Northern) and Merseyrail workers in the RMT union. Trains will be running at a much-reduced service and people are advised to allow extra time for journeys and to plan carefully.

As a result of the strike action, services across the rail network are expected to be extremely busy and the Club's Main Partner, SportPesa, has been working in conjunction with the Everton Fans' Forum to help travelling Toffees planning to attend the game. SportPesa and Everton will cover travel costs for supporters who use the Club's official coaches departing from Goodison Park.

Everton Fans' Forum member Tom Moore said: “After speaking with other fans going to the Burnley game, we soon realised there were transport issues and, after an insightful and productive building meeting with SportPesa at last week's Fans' Forum meeting, we worked with the Club and their Main Sponsor to help Evertonians who might be facing difficulties with their journey.”

Shaun Simmons, Head of Marketing at SportPesa, said:  “When we heard about the travel issues facing the Everton fans planning to travel to Turf Moor on Saturday, we wanted to do everything in our power to help out. So, we have organised a fleet of coaches to ensure that Evertonians have as stress-free a journey as possible - both to and from Burnley. Hopefully they bring back three points with them.”

Supporters in possession of a valid match ticket are urged to claim their free travel place as soon as possible by contacting the Everton Fan Centre as there are a limited number of coaches available. Fans who have already purchased official coach travel to Saturday's game will be contacted by the Fan Centre to process a full refund.

Don't wish that on Burnley Colin. They don't deserve that.

Nice touch by the club and the sponsors though.

What a gesture, one of the shortest journeys with one of the smallest allocations.

How about giving free travel every week to watch a side that can't be arsed even trying to win away from home?

Our away following deserve so much more than this.

The club is offering free eye masks and ear plugs for supporters attending the game. Free team posters from 1985 will be given out to remind us of happier times.

Burnley is one of the last places on earth I would want to visit, free travel or not.

To do so, to watch a dire Everton side, managed by Fat Sam... well, words fail me.

How long is Coleman out? With Coleman and Walcott in the side, it will give at least a goal. Not to mention if Rooney has a decent game. I believe they are one of the most important factors to win.

We won't get another point away all season. Not the way this cretin sets his teams up. Burnley haven't won for 11 games... next up for them: the remedy club. Banker home win if ever there was one.

Can someone cancel Schneiderlin's, Williams's, and Cuco Martina's tickets... might be worth going then!

Posts 7 and 8 – I agree totally. Even if they offered a free seat between Beyonce and Eva Green, I'd give it a swerve – the thought of having to watch another Spurs or Watford etc fiasco is just too great a deterrent.

ps: I didn't realise Allardyce's backroom staff are now so numerous they make up 4% on a ToffeeWeb poll.
