Why Choose Train Travel?


Train travel offers a standout benefit – cost-effectiveness. With lower fuel costs and competitive ticket pricing, fans can enjoy significant savings compared to other travel options.


Trains are a more sustainable mode of transport, emitting fewer greenhouse gases per passenger than cars or planes. Choosing the train actively contributes to reducing carbon emissions and promoting a more sustainable future for all.

Convenience and Comfort

Trains provide a comfortable and convenient travel experience. With amenities like onboard Wi-Fi, spacious seating, and the freedom to move around, train journeys can enhance your football adventure.

The TrainSplit app makes it easy to find cheaper alternative journeys through split ticketing.

The Impact of Your Pledge

By making the pledge, you're not just committing to a one-time action; you're contributing to a broader movement for change. Your pledge acts as a catalyst for others to reconsider their travel choices and embrace more sustainable alternatives.

The power of collective action cannot be underestimated. By pledging to choose train travel for away games, you're making a tangible commitment to a more sustainable future. Together, with initiatives like Pledgeball and GFW, we can make a significant difference in reducing the environmental impact of football fan travel.

So, what are you waiting for? Take the pledge today and be part of the change. Let's make every journey count, creating a legacy of sustainability for future generations of football fans.
