Affordable car sharing now available to supporters of all League clubs
The Football League and Britain's largest car sharing site Liftshare.com have today announced a nationwide partnership that will bring low-cost, sustainable travel to fans of Football League clubs.
Football fans across the country will have access to the new ‘Get to the Game’ travel platform from today at http://football-league.liftshare.com. The new service will enable supporters to save money and help the club fill seats while lowering congestion in each club’s city on match day.
Not only can fans can see all public transport options to any match quickly using Get to the Game, they can consult Liftshare to find other fans travelling their way. The tool allows drivers to post details of their match day travel and offer their spare car seats to other fans for a split of the total petrol spend to keep costs down.
Football fans without a car can request and pre-book lifts to or from a game with those driving to fixtures. Liftshare alerts keep members notified as soon as a suitable journey is posted in their area, giving club supporters a smart platform to coordinate travel with other dedicated fans each week.
Drew Barrand, Marketing Director of The Football League said: “We are delighted to be working with Liftshare to deliver the Get-to-the-Game service. We believe it will be an invaluable tool for football fans when it comes to planning journeys to both Home and Away fixtures.
