Hitch A Lift!

Football League launches new partnership

"We also believe that the ability to use the Liftshare platform to facilitate car-pooling between fans will help open up access to fixtures that would have otherwise been untenable will help stimulate attendance to games all around the country."

"We believe it will be an invaluable tool for football fans when it comes to planning journeys to both Home and Away fixtures.

Drew Barrand, Marketing Director of The Football League said: "We are delighted to be working with Liftshare to deliver the Get-to-the-Game service.

Liftshare alerts keep members notified as soon as a suitable journey is posted in their area, giving club supporters a smart platform to coordinate travel with other dedicated fans each week.  

Football fans without a car can request and pre-book lifts to or from a game with those driving to fixtures.

The tool allows drivers to post details of their match day travel and offer their spare car seats to other fans for a split of the total petrol spend to keep costs down.

Not only can fans can see all public transport options to any match quickly using Get to the Game, they can consult Liftshare to find other fans travelling their way.

The new service will enable supporters to save money and help the club fill seats while lowering congestion in each club's city on matchday.

. Football fans across the country will have access to the new 'Get to the Game' travel platform from today at

The Football League and Britain's largest car sharing site have announced a nationwide partnership that will bring low-cost, sustainable travel to fans of Football League clubs.
