AVID football fans looking to watch Ross County in action will be able to save money on their travel thanks to a link-up with Stagecoach.

A new partnership between the club and Stagecoach means season ticket holders will be able to swap their car for the bus and save 25 per cent off their travel to the ground from surrounding areas in the Highlands. Fans simply have to show their season ticket when boarding the bus to claim the discount when travelling from Inverness and several towns and villages across Ross-shire.

Scott Boyd, sporting director at Ross County, said: "I believe this... will help to improve our links with the wider community and supporters who travel from different areas in the Highlands and beyond to support Ross County.

"Our aim is to be more than a football club and having this service will make getting to the Global Energy Stadium more affordable and accessible than ever before. I hope this is the start of a long-term relationship with Stagecoach... so I hope as many of our fans as possible take advantage of this new partnership."

The offer runs until the end of the season.

David Beaton, managing director at Stagecoach Highlands added: “We are really proud to be working with Ross County Football Club to offer season ticket holders a discount when they travel with us to the stadium.

"Following the feedback we’ve received, we’ve adjusted the timetable to make it easier for fans to get back to surrounding areas after the match and we’ll look forward to welcoming fans on board to get to the next match. ”

The discount will be available to RCFC fans until the end of the 19/20 season.

Remaining home fixtures:

  • Saturday, February 15 – Ross County v St Johnstone
  • Sunday, March 8 – Ross County v Rangers
  • Saturday, March 14 – Ross County v Hamilton Accies
  • Saturday, April 4 – Ross County v St Mirren
  • Plus a minimum of two further home games during the league split.
