ASTON Villa fans are being offered free travel from Wyre Forest to the team’s first home game of the season against Wigan Athletic this weekend.

Villa will be looking to continue their good start to the season when they face The Latics on Saturday after claiming three points in their first match of the new Championship season against Hull City last night.

Barney Williams, co-founder of Zeelo said: “After the heartbreak of narrowly missing out on promotion to the Premier League last season, Aston Villa fans will have high hopes of securing a return back to the top flight of English football this time round.

“With one of the largest fanbases in England, we want to help as many Villa fans in the West Midlands and Worcestershire region cheer on their team at Villa Park and drive them on to success this season.

“Our executive coach service with live tracking means that fans can enjoy a more direct, hassle free and cost-effective way to get to the stadium for the 2018/2019 season and we’re delighted to be able to offer fans a free journey to Villa Park for their first home game of the season.”

And members of the Claret and Blue Army can get to Villa Park for free thanks to on-demand coach service Zeelo, who are organising pick up points for fans from various locations in West Midlands, including Bromsgrove, Halesowen, Kidderminster and Stourport.
