Travel coordinator, Mark Eckersall, writes...

"TASC will be providing coach travel to the FA Cup tie at Portsmouth on Saturday 30th November. These coaches will be strictly ticket only rather than the usual pay on the day.

We aren’t used to these longer journeys and expensive coach hires these days, where two drivers are needed, so the fares were set to be higher than usual.

However, the club has stepped in to subsidise the fares as a thank you for the travelling our fans have done so far this season and their tremendous support. We are very grateful for this gesture and hope it gives even more fans the chance to attend.

Therefore we have been able to reduce the costs by at least £10 per ticket to just £25 for adults and £20 per ticket to under 16s and full-time students with valid ID and concessions.

These will be family coaches to transport fans of all ages. There is strictly no alcohol allowed on board by law and policy of TASC/Swans Travel. Please make alternative arrangements if this does not suit to allow everyone to enjoy this special day for the club.

TASC Travel Coordinator, Mark Eckersall, is now pleased to add that "The tickets for our family supporters' coaches to Portsmouth are now available, along with match tickets, from the club offices at the times stated above. Please book early to allow us to judge numbers. Thanks for your support".
