Free buses for travelling Swansea City fans thanks to Capital One
LUCKY Swansea City fans already on a high from one of the club's most successful years have received another unexpected lift.
More than 30,000 Jack Army members will be making their way up the M4 for the Capital One Cup Final against Bradford City on Sunday, February 24.
And now in an attempt to reward loyal fans who have driven up and down the country backing the club, the credit card company which gives its name to the competition has decided to give supporters the chance to travel for free.
Twenty-one coaches — dubbed the Capital One Convoy — will set off on the morning of the game, giving 1,000 fans free travel to the match.
Michael Woodburn, chief marketing officer at Capital One, said: "Fans of both clubs face over a 300-mile round trip to Wembley and we wanted to reward their loyalty and thank them for their passionate support in the competition throughout the season.
"The journey to Wembley is part of the magic of a cup final day and the thousands of fans aboard the Capital One Convoy will be getting their day off to the best possible start."
Swans fans who have travelled to every round of the league cup will have clocked up a huge 1,156 miles.
The club took on Crawley away in the third round before travelling to Anfield to beat Liverpool 3-1.
They then beat Middlesbrough at the Liberty Stadium before going to London for the first-leg of their semi-final against Chelsea.
Demand was huge for tickets for the Capital One Cup final, with the Liberty Stadium club selling all 33,000 tickets.
