Wembley: Free travel for some Bradford and Swansea fans

Capital One, who bought the sponsorship rights for the tournament last summer, have laid on 42 coaches that will take supporters of the two finalists to Wembley on February 24 in an initiative called the 'Capital One Convoy'.

Bradford fans who have booked coach travel to Wembley via the club's official coach provider will be sent a letter with the opportunity to have their travel refunded.
