  • Huddersfield Giants encourage fans to travel by bus

    With increasing numbers of rugby fans travelling to Home matches, Huddersfield Giants is encouraging more people to travel by bus to help ease congestion around the stadium.

    With over 120 buses operating in Huddersfield, First Bus has partnered with Huddersfield Giants to become an Official Partner to encourage people to travel by bus during match days. First Bus has also become an exclusive travel partner and has sponsored the Academy kits for the 16-19 team.

    During match days First Bus operates 27 different bus services surrounding Huddersfield, Halifax and Bradford. A range of easy payment methods, with contactless and mobile ticketing are available, so customers don’t need to worry about having the right change for their bus fare. Fans visiting Huddersfield can also use the First Bus Travel App to check when their bus is due at their nearest bus stop.

    Speaking about the partnership, Martin Hirst, Commercial Director at First Bus in West Yorkshire, said: “Our frequent and great value buses can take you into Huddersfield and then it’s only a short walk across to the stadium. We also offer a wide range of tickets available to suit the needs of different customers, including the Weekend 5 travel for £5.50 ticket, which is great value if you’re travelling with friends or family and our cheapest tickets can be purchased directly from our mTickets App in advance of boarding the bus.”

    Eorl Crabtree, Club Ambassador for Huddersfield Giants, adds: “I’m extremely excited to bring on First Bus as the first ever main sponsor of the Huddersfield Giants academy team. Their desire and ambition to help people within the community are also trademarks of the Giants and I’m looking forward to creating a great partnership and seeing the First Bus logo on the famous claret and gold jersey.”
