Swalec Trip Launches County’s New Away Match Travel Initiative

Swalec Trip Launches County’s New Away Match Travel Initiative

Worcestershire CCC are delighted to announce details of the first trip in an exciting new Away Match Travel initiative for the 2017 season as part of a focused push by the commercial team at New Road to improve the range of benefits available to members.

This particular offering will see the Club run subsidised packages to selected away match days during 2017, comprising of return coach travel and a match admission ticket.

This will enable members to watch the County compete away from New Road for considerably less than the day would be likely to cost them if purchasing a match ticket and making their own way to and from the away venue.

Worcester-based company Astons Coaches, who specialise in private coach and minibus hire locally, nationally and internationally, have linked up with the County – having helped run successful away days to the County’s limited overs quarter-final matches in recent seasons.

Astons’ extensive fleet of 55 vehicles and team of vastly experienced drivers make them the perfect partner for this venture, providing luxurious executive coaches which boast top class facilities including air-con, leather headrests and an on-board toilet.

To kick start this scheme, the Club has put together a package to visit the SSE SWALEC on the opening day of the season (Friday 14th April 2017) for day one of the Specsavers County Championship match against Glamorgan CCC.

Return coach travel from New Road and match admission will cost just £25 for members (£35 for non-members)

The same package will also be available for day two of the match, meaning members could even book themselves on for both days and check into a hotel in Cardiff for the Friday night to enjoy an Easter weekend break, before returning following the close of play on the second day.

All guests will be able to leave their car at New Road free of charge, before boarding the coach which will depart at 8am prompt on both days, aiming to arrive at the SSE SWALEC for 10am, before departing the SWALEC at 7pm and arriving back at New Road around 9pm.

Further details will be released in the coming weeks regarding other away matches to which the club will be running similar packages, whilst additional pick-ups could be added en-route for future trips where feasible.
