Away Travel: Important Notice

A notice regarding the recent away travel updates regarding alcohol.

Unfortunately the law states that alcohol is not allowed on any coach or train that is being used to principally take supporters to a game.

This obviously includes our supporters’ coaches but presumably not trains as they are not running primarily to get fans to games.

We are trying to cater for all our supporters, both young and old, we cannot risk our volunteer travel organisers being fined and our coach operator is well within their rights to uphold this ban.

The ban also extends to any illegal substances.

We are sorry if some supporters feel that they are unable to travel with us, we fully support those who wish to have a “good day out”, but we feel we have to act within the law on this matter.

This is a perennial challenge to all supporters groups and you will find that the vast majority police their coaches accordingly.

If the numbers drop then we will scale back our coach operation and still run it at an appropriate level for the demand, this will probably mean that seats may be limited and once we are full then we are full, with little or no flexibility.

OASST Board.
