First Capital Connect has teamed up with a football club to provide fans with limited special offers.

The train operator announced a partnership scheme with Stevenage FC last week which organisers say will see fans benefit in the coming months.

First Capital Connect’s Customer Service Director Keith Jipps said: “Our fares at the weekend are perfect for football fans and this is made even better with our GroupSave discount offers where three or four fans can travel for the price of two.

“This is an exciting partnership for us as we both strive to improve the football day out experience for fans of the club.”

Stevenage FC Chief Executive, Barry Webber said: “As a football club we understand and realise that a huge proportion of fans up and down the country travel by train, so for us to be able to help our fans get into Stevenage through our partnership with First Captial Connect, I think it’s fantastic.”
