NatEx partner with Warwickshire Cricket Club
Warwickshire County Cricket Club has secured a new deal with National Express, which sees the operator become the Official Coach & Bus Travel Partner to the Club and Edgbaston Stadium until at least 2018. From this coming cricket season, National Express West Midlands will provide transport links from Birmingham New Street Station and a number of other city locations to Edgbaston on all major match days. Return shuttle services will operate for Birmingham Bears’ Friday night NatWest T20 Blast group games at Edgbaston. The partnership also includes a package for the Warwickshire and Birmingham Bears squad to travel to away fixtures in a coach provided by National Express’s sister brand, The Kings Ferry, over the course of the season.
National Express West Midlands MD, Peter Coates, said, ‘We are thrilled to become the official travel partner of Warwickshire and Birmingham Bears. Based in the heart of Birmingham, National Express is perfectly positioned to carry fans directly and affordably to Edgbaston Stadium and our new shuttle service will make the big matches even more accessible.’
