    Supporters planning to travel for our final away game of the season at Crystal Palace next month can take advantage of free coach travel provided in association with main Club Sponsor SportPesa.

    The fixture at Selhurst Park on Sunday 14th May (KO 12noon) could be a vital one in the battle for Premier League survival and a vociferous away following could provide Marco Silva’s side with an extra edge in their quest for points.

    We’ve teamed up with SportPesa to give fans the opportunity to take advantage of free return coach travel from the KCOM Stadium for this game. Coaches will depart from the South Stand Car Park at 5am, with 500 free places available on a first come, first served basis.

    Travel can only be booked once a match ticket has been purchased (one place per ticket), and is available until all free places have been filled. Tickets for the game will be released on Wednesday 26th April.

    A spokesperson from SportPesa said: "At what is a crucial game for club, we feel it is important that as many fans as possible are able to get to Selhurst Park to cheer the team. We hope this small gesture is well received by fans and can help the team towards a vital three points."

    The Club hopes this gesture will help to sell all of its chosen allocation for the game, which would be the fifth occasion to do so this season

    Done it by coach once - never again! I'm not going this time due to other commitments but, if there's a next time I'll take Citygirl's advice and find a cheap motel and spend the night down there.

    Good effort by the club and nice gesture by the Allams with the help of Sport Pesa I'm sure we can all agree.

    'The Club hopes this gesture will help to sell all of its chosen allocation for the game, which would be the fifth occasion to do so this season'

    We've only sold out our away allocation on four occasions this season?

    We only took about 1,500 tickets for most most games. <doh>

    I'm sure you're in error as I'm of the opinion that they can shove it! A good effort and nice gesture would have seen the Away Direct scheme continue for this season, thereby giving some small reward to those willing to travel the length and breadth of the country attending EVERY away match A good effort and nice gesture would also have seen an answer to the question as to whether or not the scheme would operate this season. After a score and more of emails it took the onanists 'just' seven months to finally provide an answer, a piss poor answer at that. Now, unsurprisingly when the chips are down they're encouraging City fans to travel in numbers, I have a 'nice gesture' for them!

    Pity they didn't do it when they announced the fixture change, gone and booked the train now and its not an easy place to get to by 11.00 on a Sunday morning.

    Even when launching an obvious good news story the club's media machine still takes the time to have a dig at absent fans. Extraordinary.

    It's outrageous. Tiger Travel should never have been locked up in the first place.

    TIGER TRAVEL IS INNOCENT.
