Derby County are delighted to announce that the club will be offering 1,000 supporters free coach travel for the side’s Capital One Cup encounter at Leicester City later this month.
The Rams take on the Foxes in an East Midlands derby in the Third Round of the competition at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday 24th September 2013 (7:45pm kick-off).

The club have taken the decision to offer free coach travel for 1,000 supporters, in an effort to try and ease the financial burden on those who follow the team on their travels.
President and Chief Executive Sam Rush said: “We are always looking at new initiatives to try and keep watching Derby County as affordable as possible.

"With this in mind, we are pleased to be able to offer free coach travel to 1,000 supporters for this month’s Capital One Cup tie at Leicester City.
“After such a good showing in the competition thus far, we hope this offer will encourage our supporters to continue their fantastic backing away from home, and roar the side into the Fourth Round.”
