TRAVEL: Sussex announce new partnership with Sharks Travel

09-Mar-2017

Sussex Cricket have announced that they will be making it easier for supporters to attend their matches this season by striking a brand new partnership with Sharks Travel, who have become the club’s Official Fan Travel Provider.

Sharks Travel, which will be operated by Event Travel Hub, will run a return coach travel service from over 30 pick-up locations across Sussex, to all of the Sharks’ home NatWest T20 Blast fixtures in 2017 including the match at Arundel Castle.

Coaches will arrive at The 1st Central County Ground, or indeed Arundel, approximately 45 minutes before the start of play, and will return to the ground before the conclusion of the match, ready to depart 20 minutes after play.

The pick-up locations will span across a number of towns and villages across the county, and Sussex’s members will also be able to benefit from reductions in prices on the cost of coaches to the matches.

Sharks Travel will also be running coaches to Sussex’s Royal London One-Day Cup clash with Gloucestershire at The Saffrons; the first time that the county have returned to play at Eastbourne since 2000.

Darren Gallis, Director of Event Travel Hub said, “This partnership is the perfect opportunity to showcase our supporter coach travel service.

“Having successfully implemented our Seagull Travel brand with Brighton and Hove Albion FC, we believe we have the ability to deliver a travel solution which will enhance the Sussex Cricket matchday by providing a tailored travel service from over 30 pick-up locations.

“We are proud to work with local sporting events and are committed to building a reliable, professional and timely travel package whilst working with Sussex Cricket’s existing Official Coach Travel provider Cordery Coach.”

Sussex’s Commercial Manager Mark Judges said, “We are aware that it is not always convenient for our supporters to drive, or indeed get the train to Hove, Arundel and Eastbourne so we are delighted that Sharks Travel can offer an alternative mode of transport for our fans.

“We hope that our supporters are able to embrace this new initiative and overall, we hope that this will further improve the Sussex Sharks matchday experience.”

Supporters can view prices, pick up times and locations together with purchasing travel seats online via www.sharkstravel.co.uk or by calling 0845 9011 442.

E-mail enquiries about the service can also be made via info@sharkstravel.co.uk

Supporters have the option of purchasing a NatWest T20 Blast travel season ticket(s) to cover the seven home South Group fixtures, or travel on a match-by-match basis. However, please note that match by match coach seats are subject to availability.
