The first fixture against Wigan was a huge success with eight coaches quickly booked up and that led to 888sport extending the 8 Issue 65 offer to the Reading and Nottingham Forest games. In order to watch every single away fixture this season Blues fans will travel over 2,300 miles at an average of 102 miles per game. Speaking to, Blues Club Captain Paul Robinson said, “The demand for free travel for the first away game has been amazing and the players are delighted that 888sport have decided to extend the offer. “Travelling Blues fans make a lot of noise and we are expecting that to be bigger than ever with more fans joining us on the road.”
