How Aston Villa fans can get free travel to the Championship play-off final at Wembley
Aston Villa fans can claim free travel to Wembley for next week’s Championship play-off final – but they must be quick.
Villa made it through to the promotion showpiece after a goalless draw against Middlesbrough on Tuesday was enough for them to beat the Riverside club 1-0 on aggregate.
With the claret and blues now just 90 minutes away from a return to the Premier League, supporters are drawing up their plans for the trip to the national stadium on Saturday, 26th May (5:00pm kick off).
And fans can travel to the game against Fulham by coach for free if they are one of the first 50 to book with Zeelo, and by entering the promo code “ASTON” on their website here.
Tickets are sent straight to user’s phones and the direct trip means that fans will not need to worry about parking or crowded public transport after the game.
Zeelo will be organising pick up points for Villa fans from various locations in West Midlands and neighbouring regions including Birmingham New Street – Electric Cinema, Bromsgrove, Erdington, Highters Heath, Kings Heath, Lichfield, Olton, Redditch, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and Tamworth.
