AFC Bournemouth have announced AFCB Vital's sponsorship of the Supporters Coaches will continue into a fourth season.
AFC Bournemouth supporters will travel more than 1,000 miles next week to back their team thanks to afcb.vitalfootball.co.uk.
The Cherries hit the road for their two latest Championship fixtures at Huddersfield and Doncaster either side of a Capital One Cup second round tie at Watford, and the fans` website`s backing means at least one coach will travel to every away league and cup game this season.
The sponsorship enabled supporters to follow Eddie Howe`s team up and down the country as they completed a historic promotion from League One last term.
And they will be visiting some of the country`s most famous grounds over the next nine months, including Elland Road, the City Ground and Loftus Road as the clubs competes in the second tier for the first time in more than 20 years.
"This is a really exciting season for everyone associated with the club and we have some great away trips to look forward to," Cherries commercial director Rob Mitchell said.
"I would like to thank afcb.vitalfootball.co.uk for their continued support and helping fans get to games and behind the team because I know the players and coaching staff appreciate it.
"In the four seasons they have sponsored the supporters` coaches we have had great success on the pitch and I`m sure this season will be just as memorable."
afcb.vitalfootball.co.uk administrator Dave Jennings added, 'When the fans` website first agreed a sponsorship package with the club three years ago, the one key aspect of the coach sponsorship was to guarantee that at least one supporters coach would be travelling to every single league and cup match as during previous seasons this was not always the case.
"Having a guaranteed service for fans who would otherwise have no means of transport to get to games and support the team around the country is fantastic.'
'We have been delighted with how popular the supporters coaches have been with fans over the last few years and we hope this will continue into a fourth season."
A full list of prices and departure times for the afcb.vitalfootball.co.uk sponsored supporters` coaches will be announced shortly.
Season ticket holders are able to enjoy a 20% discount on places on the coaches which are once again supplied by Excelsior Coaches Limited, whose fleet of luxury vehicles ensure that travelling by coach is the most comfortable and convenient way for supporters to get to the match.
Supporters` travel is open to Cherries supporters of all ages, although those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. A club appointed Steward travels on board each coach to maintain a safe travelling environment at all times. No alcohol is permitted on board the coaches.
Tickets and coach places can be purchased from the ticket office at the Goldsands Stadium in person 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, 9.30am-4pm on Saturdays and 11am-4pm on Sundays. They can also be booked over the phone on 0844 576 1910.
