Manchester United offer subsidised travel for FA Cup final

Manchester United have agreed to subsidise part of the cost of coach travel to the FA Cup final next month.

The Reds face rivals Man City at Wembley on Saturday, 3 June, but train strikes will cause problems for fans travelling to London.

United are monitoring the situation and are laying on coaches at what they feel is a subsidised cost of £50 per adult and £40 for U16s.

A statement from United read: “The club will continue to monitor the situation, however we are now satisfied there is enough coach-provision to cope with the expected demand.

“Supporters who are successful in the ticket ballot will receive an email outlining their travel options.”

On top of that, the FA will be running its own coach operation, which will cost £60.

Now it’s a matter of having enough coaches to deal with the demand.

The game will also kick-off at 3pm.

United book their place in the final after a win on penalties against Brighton, whilst City knocked out Sheffield United.
