West Brom fans get free travel for Southampton trip

West Bromwich Albion will provide free transport for around 2,000 fans to their Premier League game at Southampton on April 27.

The Baggies today announced they will run the free coaches initiative for the 11th successive season.

A fleet of 40 free coaches will take fans to St Mary’s Stadium.

Albion chief executive Mark Jenkins said: “We’ve enjoyed some memorable victories on the road this season and our away support has played a huge part in spurring the team on.

“As a thank-you to the fans, who make a sterling effort to follow the team all over the country, we are laying on free coach travel for an away game for the 11th successive campaign.

“The stats show that the free-coach travel offer has proved something of a good omen and hopefully the supporters will head back home with another positive result to smile about.”

The Baggies, who were at home to Swansea today, have made a similar offer for the last 10 seasons with free coaches twice taking fans to Sunderland and Wigan and once to Reading, Hull, Barnsley, Norwich, Charlton, Middlesbrough and West Ham. The Baggies are unbeaten in nine of the 11 games.

Albion have been allocated 2,200 match tickets and coach seats will be available on a first come, first served basis to supporters who purchase a ticket for the game.

Match tickets, priced £30 for adults, £26 for 17-20-year-olds, pensioners and students and £17 for under-17s, will be available to away season ticket holders from March 26.

Home season ticket holders can buy tickets online from April 3 and in person and by phone on from April 6. They will be available to members online on from April 8 and in person and by phone from April 10. Any remaining tickets will go on general sale from April 15.

Moxey yet again proved right when he famously said 'we won't do an Albion'.

i.e. treat your fans with respect and give a little back to thank them.
