In partnership with official Club sponsor and travel partner Virgin Trains, Preston North End are running a ‘football’ special to the vital clash with Milton Keynes Dons next month.
The clash between the sides currently both aiming for an automatic promotion spot takes place on Saturday 7th March, with a 3pm kick-off at stadium:mk and train tickets go on sale immediately.
Standard class and first class options are available. Preston North End's commercial team will be running the first class facility and the team will be providing customers in first class with a bacon or sausage sandwich on the way down and jacket potato with fillings, or sandwiches, on the return journey.
The train is for Preston North End supporters travelling to the game, only, and will only stop in both directions as Wigan North Western, for any fans who wish to get on a little further into the journey, and at Milton Keynes Central itself.
The train* will depart Preston Station at 11.25am on the Saturday, and collect at Wigan 11.35am and arrives in Milton Keynes at 13.25, with the transfer waiting to take you straight to the ground.
