Travel Away First Team Style
Saints fans will experience what it’s like to travel like the first team this season thanks to a new agreement with Coliseum Coaches.
The driving force behind the club’s travel to all away matches is in the local and reliable hands of the Southampton based coach company, ensuring it will feel like home even when Saints are away this year.
Coliseum has serviced the first team in recent years, providing journeys to and from matches in luxury and comfort. Now fans will also have the opportunity to arrive in similar style at all Premier League grounds during the forthcoming season.
The new fleet of coaches replaces the existing travel arrangements and will therefore be booked directly through Coliseum, enabling you to buy in three different ways:
