Manchester City have announced that they will foot the bill for all fans’ travel to and from Selhurst Park, for their Premier League game against Crystal Palace on Bank Holiday Monday, according to the Daily Mail.
City have been allocated 2,500 tickets for the match on April 6th, but their fans had threatened to boycott the game, after kick off was put back to 8pm, meaning that travel back to Manchester on public transport would not be possible until the next day.
But the club have been proactive and stepped in, offering free coach travel for all the supporters making the near 450 mile round trip.
A statement on the club website read: “To thank fans for their unwavering support throughout the season, we are pleased to announce we will be offering free round-trip coach travel for our Easter Monday fixture against Crystal Palace.”
It is not the first time that City have made it their mission to help their fans, as back in September the club paid half the cost of every supporters’ ticket for the trip to Arsenal, after they were famously forced to spend over £60 for a previous visit to the Emirates Stadium.
