Free Barnsley coaches to be powered by Utilita

Club's Official Energy partner sponsoring coaches for trip to Oakwell

19 April 2018

The free coaches for Brentford supporters to make the trip to Barnsley next week will be powered by Utilita.

The Club announced earlier this week that, in order to assist Bees fans in making the journey to Yorkshire, there would be free coach travel for those attending Brentford’s final away game of the Sky Bet Championship season. Brentford will travel to Oakwell, Barnsley’s home for 130 years, on Saturday 28 April for a match that will kick-off at 3pm. And Utilita – the Club’s Official Energy Partner, and energy supplier – will be sponsoring the coaches.

With just three games of the season to go, Brentford sit just outside the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off places and there is all to play for. The Bees head to Barnsley after this Saturday’s West London derby against Queens Park Rangers, which is close to selling out. Up to ten coaches will be available free of charge for the match and they can be booked on the Club’s ticketing website here.

Mark Devlin, Brentford FC Chief Executive, said: “I would like to thank Utilita for their support of our free coach initiative. The game at Barnsley could be vital and we need as many supporters as possible at Oakwell to back Dean and the lads as we chase those Play-Off places. We do appreciate that this could be a bit late notice and that some fans may already have made travel plans. We hope that those people can now join us and that this may now encourage those that haven’t, and many more to travel to the game.”

Tickets for the match at Barnsley are currently on General Sale with adults £23, seniors and young persons £16 and juniors £5 or £10 depending on age. Full ticket information and details on how to buy can be seen here. When booking coaches supporters should note that no tickets will be issued for travel, fans should keep their email confirmation and bring it on the day to access the coaches. Fans are also reminded that alcohol cannot be consumed on Club coaches and no-one under 18 can travel unaccompanied.
