Cardiff Blues Team up with Ferris Coaches to launch Ticket and Travel deal

2nd March 2012

Cardiff Blues have teamed up with Ferris Coaches to offer supporters up and down the region a brand new ticket and travel deal in readiness for the big Welsh derby match, when the Blues face the Scarlets on Saturday 24 March, 6:30pm kick off.

Supporters are being encouraged to arrange a group day out at the rugby with friends, family or work colleagues to watch this highly anticipated match. In return, Cardiff Blues will send a complimentary bus courtesy of Ferris coaches, to the chosen venue to take the group to and from Cardiff City Stadium.

Tickets costs just £22 per person, which is the standard price of a Blues adult ticket.* Each ticket gives entry to the match itself as well as the Heineken Fanzone, which hosts as array of pre match entertainment.

Blues players Gareth Davies and Kristian Dacey visited Ferris Coach Depot to show their support of the package and meet with company owner Ray Ferris, who is delighted to be involved in the scheme. Speaking of the partnership Ray Ferris said:

“We are delighted to have established this new, exciting partnership with Cardiff Blues.”

“As a keen rugby supporter myself we understand how important rugby is in our community and the Blues v Scarlets match is one of the must see matches of the season, so I am sure this deal will prove very popular.”

“The Blues are very active in promoting their games around the region and this is a really good offer that provides a perfect excuse for a group of people to arrange a day out at the rugby, without having to worry about transport or choosing a designated driver!”

Regional Rugby Clubs are welcome to take advantage of this offer. Cardiff Blues Commercial Director Tina Tew said:

“The best players from the Blues and Scarlets have already helped Wales win the Triple Crown and this will be the first opportunity to see them play against each other after the Six Nations.”

“The ticket and travel deal has already been sent to out to our regional clubs, who always enjoy coming to watch this exciting derby encounter.”

“We can pick supporters up directly from their rugby club and bring them straight to the stadium.”

“A number of Clubs have already shown interest in the scheme and see it as excellent value for money.”
