Nottingham Forest are pleased to announce their sponsorship deal with 888sport and have extended the free travel for Forest fans to away games due to high demand.
888sport will supply free travel to all midweek league fixtures prior to Christmas in a bid to help the team in their quest for promotion to the English Premier League as part of the “888sport Fans First Campaign.” .
Free travel for Forest fans has been trialed for the first two away fixtures and 888sport have extended the offer until Christmas.
To watch every away league fixture this season Nottingham Forest fans will travel over 2320 miles at an average of 101 miles per game.
Chris Cohen commented: “The players and staff are very grateful to 888sport for putting on the free travel to midweek away games for the fans.
“Travelling support makes a huge difference to the team on the field and the noise will go up a level thanks to this kind gesture.”
Itai Pazner, Senior Vice President and Head of B2C at 888 Holdings, added; “We are very excited to be kicking off our Championship campaign with one of the most prestigious clubs in the competition.
“We believe that the Championship has retained the essence of true football and understand that fans are the heartbeat of every club, so we really want to help them with things that will make a significant difference to their relationship with their team.
“We know how difficult it can be for fans to make the long journeys to away games in midweek, particularly when fixtures are changed with little notice and there are no return trains home.
“We are hoping that the free coaches will help get more travelling fans to and from the games and give the teams a real boost on the pitch.”
As part of the “888sport Fans First” Campaign, the company also plan to offer the best odds in the market to fans from our sponsored clubs and as part of the sponsorship, fans will also get the opportunity to take up the Goals Means More promotion on www.888sport.com and get a free £5 bet every time their team scores a goal.
