First Bus Free Matchday Travel

First Aberdeen and Aberdeen Football Club have announced a new partnership that will see Aberdeen supporters  receive FREE matchday travel to home games at Pittodrie.

Supporters will be able to take advantage of the offer across all home matches during the 2022/23 season including the Premier Sports Cup group stage matches.

Ticket holders will receive a promo code ahead of each match, sent via email by the club. This code offers 100% discount on a First Day Adult Ticket when redeemed at checkout on the First Bus App.

The free travel offer is only available to fans who have signed up to the club mailing list and is available to access via the First Bus App only. This offer cannot be used for tickets purchased on
board the bus and is only valid to redeem on match days.

The First Bus App is free to download and allows fans to plan their matchday journeys, as well as track their bus in real-time.

Speaking to the club website, Graeme Macfarlan, Commercial Director for First Bus Scotland, said: “We are delighted to further enhance our partnership with Aberdeen FC to help fans get to and from games in a safe, easy, environmentally friendly way.

“First Bus has been part of the community for many years in Aberdeen and is rooted in our business as the birthplace of our company. Our partnership with the football club will allow us to reach a wider audience to further encourage people to choose public transport as their preferred method of travel, especially on matchdays at Pittodrie and we are delighted to continue to show our commitment to that support”

Rob Wicks, Aberdeen Football Club Commercial Director, added: “First Bus have been a long-term supporter of the Club given their close links within the local community and this latest initiative is a great example of how our partners are working with us to improve the overall match-day experience for our fans.

“Given the cost-of-living crisis which many are facing we are committed to doing what we can to make football affordable for all and recently extended the 0% interest over six months on season tickets in an effort to help. The opportunity for supporters to travel to Pittodrie for free will result in a saving for many and by using the complimentary service, fans travelling with First Bus will be able to do so in both a safe and sustainable manner which aligns with the Club’s clear commitment to tackling climate change.”

“We thank First Bus for working with the Club on this creative and engaging offer for supporters and I am sure it will have a positive impact for many.”
