Travel for the FA Cup 5th Round

Well done to Brentford for reaching the 5th Round of the FA Cup last night following a hard-fought victory over Barnet.

Next up is Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday 17th February, kick off 4PM, a match that has been moved from our original Saturday afternoon league match with Swansea for television coverage by BBC Wales.

BIAS is aware of the disruption and additional cost this change will involve many fans who wish to attend Sunday’s match and we have approached the Club to see what can be done to help. We hope to provide news on this shortly.

More generally, we are aware that every week, away fans are forced to spend more money on rail fares when fixtures are rescheduled for TV rights, forcing them to miss out on the cheapest tickets, or having to buy new train tickets

BIAS feels that it is deeply unfair fans miss out on the cheapest tickets when games are moved at short notice.

The Premier League, the English Football League, the Rail Delivery Group and the Unified Football Supporters Association (UFSO) all support the creation of a scheme for fans to have flexibility when they buy train tickets.  The scheme is called Fans Fare and would protect fans and ensure that they would not have to pay more for train tickets if their fixture was changed

BIAS are fully supporting this initiative through our affiliate membership of the newly formed UFSO and will keep our members advised on progress through regular updates on our Website and Facebook page

BIAS is now totally free to join so the question is, if you are not a member, why not
