Rain or shine (mostly rain), your CTSA Travel Team stay cheerful (well, apart from the grumpy bloke in the middle.....)

Last season the CTSA transported more Crawley Town Supporters to away league games than in any season in the club’s history. We hope to take even more of you to new and exotic destinations (who shouted “Coventry”) over the next ten months, and we’ll be doing so in extreme comfort and without any price increases!

As you know, we have an agreement with Clarkes of London- the UK’s Premier Coach Operator. Yet despite using the best (and most comfortable) coaches in the business, last year we were the cheapest official coach provider in League Two. We expect to deliver the same exceptional standards this year at the same low cost. How do we do this? Firstly, we plan well. Our prices are set at “break even” level and we have nobody subsidising our operations, so we have to get our sums right! Secondly, we have few overheads- we’re all volunteers. Even our coach stewards pay for their travel tickets. Finally, we don’t take you for granted. You’ll never find us wasting your money on anything frivolous- our job is to support you to support our football team, and we’ll never forget that. We’re not about personality- we’re about doing our best for CTFC.

We’re now taking bookings for our first three away matches of the new season- at Millwall, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers. The details are below, and on our Travel Page. To book, please call, text or email Travel Ken on 07843124845, or via

  • On Tuesday 14th August we travel to Millwall in the Capital One Cup. The cost for everyone is £10. The coach leaves the Broadfield Stadium at 4:45pm, to allow us enough time to get through the traffic in London for a 7:45 kick-off.

  • On Tuesday 21st August we travel to Swindon Town in our first away fixture in NPower League One. The cost is £15 for Members/£17.50 for non-members. The coach leaves the Broadfield Stadium at 4pm.

  • On Saturday 25th August we travel to Doncaster Rovers for our third match in NPower League One.The cost is £20 for Members / £25 for non-members. The coach leaves the Broadfield Stadium at 8:30am.


We’re committed to bringing you a service which is the height of comfort and reliability. If you’ve travelled with us previously you’ll already know that this includes very comfortable seats, lots of leg room, and free tea and coffee on all medium and long distance trips (and hot chocolate and, occasionally, vegetable soup!). We are also the only place that you can watch CTFC matchday DVD’s anywhere apart from in the Managers Office!

So, we look forward to the new season- and to seeing you all at the Broadfield and on a large green coach in the near future! Thanks, as always, for your continued support.
