FA CUP sponsors E.ON are offering free coach travel to Huddersfield Town’s historic Fifth Round tie with Chelsea.
Town fans can book a place on the February 16 trip to Stamford Bridge by logging on to the CarbonFootyPrint.com website and registering with the free transport scheme.
The scheme aims to reduce the amount of carbon emissions that football matches produce every week – for dedicated and armchair fans alike.
By travelling on the National Express-sponsored coach rather than by car, Town fans will save the equivalent CO2 gases produced by watching over 9,000 FA Cup matches on television.
Going by coach is the most environmentally friendly form of transport, emitting just 29g of CO2 per passenger per kilometre basis.
If just one coach is filled with fans at every game rather than travelling by car, over 12 tonnes of CO2 would be saved – the equivalent of powering one house for two seasons.
Mike Thompson, Head of Events at E.ON said: “Following on from the great success in the last round, we’re delighted to be able to offer free coach travel for fans travelling to games in the fifth round.
“With thousands of fans travelling to FA Cup games every round, it is no surprise that travel has the biggest environmental impact.”
