 Big Green Coach Solves Liverpool Fans Capital One Cup Final Travel Woes!

BIG Green Coach, the UK's largest events travel provider, has supported Liverpool FC's Capital One Cup victory by offering fans affordable coach travel straight to Wembley Stadium for the final.

With the match held on Sunday, 28 February 2016, and a 4.30pm kick off time, trains will be slower, infrequent and less reliable.

Big Green Coach want to ensure this momentous occasion isn't spoiled by travel issues. Their Operations Director Kevin Green comments:- "With trains being unpredictable; particularly on Sundays, we wanted to offer a reliable and cheaper alternative so fans can enjoy the day to its fullest.

Fans can book affordable, return coach travel from Liverpool to arrive at Wembley, at least an hour before kick off. We want to give fans enough time to soak up the atmosphere and revel in the excitement! We also guarantee that our coaches won't depart Wembley until 45 minutes after the final whistle, regardless of extra time.

We don't want anybody to miss out on any of the action because they're worried about their travel arrangements; travelling with us gives them extra flexibility.

It's a momentous occasion, and regardless of the result we want to help ensure it's a great day out for everyone!"
