Arsenal Football Club has made special travel arrangements for fans attending our FA Cup quarter-final match away to Manchester United on Monday, March 9.
There will be no mainline trains running back from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston after the match. In anticipation of the difficulties that this will cause our supporters, the club has worked with Virgin Trains to charter a train for 450 fans to make the journey. The club is also putting on extra coaches.
Both train and coach travel are being subsidised by the club to reduce costs for our fans. Train tickets will be £30 (first class) and £20 (standard class). Return coach travel will be £10 a head. Travel will only be available for supporters with a valid away ticket for the game.
Arsenal’s supporter liaison officer Mark Brindle said: “We appreciate it is going to be difficult for supporters to get home to London from the game and so we have taken these steps to ensure fans can come and support the team and know they have a safe and relatively low cost journey home.”
Full details on how to book travel will be available on www.Arsenal.com from 10am on Friday, when match tickets go on sale.
