Athlone Town fans can take the stress out of getting to Morton Stadium for the upcoming FAI Ford Cup game, with thanks to Ford, proud sponsors of the FAI Cup.
For every FAI Cup round this year, Ford will come to the rescue of fans around the country, eager to get along to support their club, and will transport them there in style.
Just in time for any Athlone Town supporter who would like to bring either their family or mates to the away game against Sporting Fingal in comfort, Ford will look after the transport to and from the game by supplying a Ford vehicle and chauffeur, and make sure every fan is fed and watered with a pre-match meal. There will be goody bags for every child, and one child on the trip will have the unique opportunity to deliver the match ball onto the pitch before kick-off.
“I go to watch our local club Cork City regularly and the atmosphere is always better at Turners Cross when there is a big away support there,” said Ford Ireland managing director Eddie Murphy. “But I also know it can be hard to get organised to bring a group to an away game and also for families going to support their local clubs as well; we hope that this initiative will make it easier for at least some fans this year.”
So whether you want to focus on your friends and get a gang to an away game, or focus on your family for your team’s big home tie, just let Ford take care of all the logistics, so you can just focus on the football.
All fans have to do is email their name and address to [email protected] with the selected FAI Ford Cup fixture they wish to attend; whether they want to travel with their family to a home game or group of friends to an away game, and a reason why they should be brought to the game by Ford.
At least two winners will be selected for every round in this year’s FAI Ford Cup.
