Virgin Trains Upgrade For lucky Preston North End Fans

4 December 2017

Virgin Trains are once again offering a 20 per cent discount to PNE season ticket holders on their west coast route.

Virgin Trains and Preston North End have launched their partnership for the 2017/18 season, which sees Virgin Trains continue as the club’s official travel partner.

Virgin Trains’ renewed commitment to the club sees it offering discounts of 20% on Advance Off Peak fares for leisure journeys taken on its west coast route*.

The discount can be used by season ticket holders as they travel around to support Preston North End’s Championship battle, or for their own leisure trips anywhere on the route which stretches from London to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

In addition to the discount, Virgin Trains is offering two lucky fans the chance to sit in Deepdale stadium’s best seats in the house. At every home game, PNE fans will also have the chance to be upgraded to two exclusive seats, located pitch-side, a few feet from the dugout.

Branded with the Virgin Trains logo and upholstered in a ‘PNE blue’, the seats give a taste of the First Class experience offered on board Virgin Trains services along the west coast, whilst giving fans the same view as PNE manager, Alex Neil, and his team.

Adrian Varma, Head of Commercial Partnerships at Virgin Trains on the west coast, said: “We know just how important it is for PNE fans in the local community to be able to support their club.

"At Virgin Trains we’re pleased to be working with Preston North End for a fourth season to offer an exclusive 20 per cent discount to their season ticket holders.

"As the club’s official travel partner, season ticket holders will be able to take advantage of discounted travel up to Scotland and down to London for leisure or attending a game, as a supporter of the club. We look forward to cheering on PNE and welcoming more fans on board our trains this season.”

Olivia Hanvey, Head of Commercial and Ticketing at Preston North End, said: “We are very pleased that Virgin Trains have again agreed to become our official travel partner for the 2017/18 season.

"This has been a very successful partnership over the past three seasons and it has proved an extremely popular one with season ticket holders, who had already been asking about the future of the deal and therefore we are delighted it has been concluded.”

PNE season ticket holders can now take advantage of discounted travel and full details can be found at: www.virgintrains.co.uk/pnefc
