SportPesa Help Blues Get To Stamford Bridge

Nearly 300 travelling Evertonians enjoyed official Club travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, courtesy of Main Partner SportPesa.

The Blues journeyed to the capital for the Premier League clash against Chelsea in a convoy of complimentary coaches when, with fans facing potential travel complications due to the major rail improvements being undertaken at Euston Station, SportPesa stepped in to cover travel costs.   
 
Toffees who took advantage of the free official Club travel spaces were treated to breakfast on arrival at Goodison Park before taking their places on the five coaches - but not before an official welcome from summer signing Cuco Martina, who recorded a special video message for those in attendance. 


Fans on board were then entertained with various activities throughout the journey, including an Everton quiz, with a winner from each of the coaches receiving the new third shirt for their efforts. 
 
Fans were also encouraged to tweet photos from the day on social media using #BluesOnTour with the best image winning a signed Everton shirt. 

Tony Whittaker, one of the Evertonians on board, told evertonfc.com: “I’ve personally done three away games in one week this week which can make following football very expensive sometimes so putting on free travel is a great thing to help supporters.
 
“Since becoming a Club partner SportPesa have done a lot for the fans and I can tell you it’s really appreciated, not just the free coach travel but they also gave out away shirts at a recent fan event as well so a big thank you to them!”
 
Shaun Simmonds, Head of Marketing for SportPesa UK, added: "When we heard about the difficulties facing Everton fans heading to Chelsea away, we felt the need to help out. 

“This was a great opportunity to continue to show our commitment to Everton fans and we hope that all of the surprises and activities on the day helped to make this journey a memorable one for all of the right reasons."
