Blues on tour hits Southampton

18/12/2014  Comments (0)  jump

Everton's next Blues On Tour event will see 200 fans get free coach travel to this weekend's Premier League clash with Southampton.

A group of Evertonians, who applied to join the special roadtrip, will receive a complimentary breakfast at Goodison Park before enjoying giveaways in the form of matchday programmes, Everton magazines, meal deal vouchers and special Everton stockings on the way to St Mary's Stadium.

Fans will also be given branded hats and scarves ticket inside the ground and a free 10 bet on the match courtesy of the Club's official betting partner, Coral.

Nick Thompson, Coral Partnership Manager, says: "We're delighted to be a part of Everton's Blues On Tour initiative and look forward to welcoming fans onto the buses.

We've currently got an Everton win chalked up at 9/4 so we're hoping the fans will have something to celebrate on the way back!

The first Blues On Tour event took place in October when 150 Blues were treated to free coach travel with Club ambassador Ian Snodin to watch the Toffees run out 3-1 winners over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Fans also enjoyed free food on the day, and one lucky winner bagged a signed Leighton Baines shirt.

The campaign forms part of the Club's Premier League's Away Fan's Initiative, which aims to make following football as an away supporter both easier and more affordable.

Richard Kenyon, Director of Marketing and Communications, said: It's well recognised that our away support is one of the best in the top-flight and we want to make sure Evertonians, who give the team their unwavering support, are rewarded.

It's a long journey to Southampton just a few days before Christmas so the Blues on Tour event is our way of saying thank you to the travelling Toffees.

There are two more Blues on Tour events planned for 2015 - ahead of the Crystal Palace fixture on 31 January and the Queens Park Rangers fixture on 21 March.

In addition, up to 10 Everton stewards travel to matches to provide fans with advice and general customer service support whilst on the road. The Away Fan Ambassador, introduced last season, is also in operation for every away fixture.
