The free travel is being supplied by PNE’s shirt sponsor 888sport.

The two games are the Tuesday night visits to Birmingham City on September 27 and Nottingham Forest on December 13.

Itai Pazner, senior vice president and head of B2C at 888 Holdings, said: “We are very excited to be kicking off our Championship campaign with one of the most prestigious clubs in the competition.

“We believe that the Championship has retained the essence of true football and understand that fans are the heartbeat of every club, so we really want to help them with things that will make a significant different to their relationship with their team.

“We know how difficult it can be for fans to make the long journeys to away games in midweek, particularly when fixtures are changed with little notice and there are no return trains home.

“We are hoping that the free coaches will help get more travelling fans to and from the games and give the teams a real boost on the pitch.”

This is the first announcement from the online betting company who will be rolling out a series of activities as part of the ‘888sport Fans First Campaign.’
