Newcastle-based rail operator Lumo has partnered with Seriös Group Newcastle Eagles basketball team to help the pro players travel to their away games comfortably and sustainably.

The new partnership will see the Eagles players transported to and from a selection of their London away games providing them with a fast, restful and direct route. Lumo’s comfortable seating will ensure extra legroom for the six-foot plus players on their journeys.

On Friday 9th February the train company will sponsor the Eagles for their game against East Kilbride’s Caledonia Gladiators.

Offering services between Edinburgh and London, Lumo has already provided comfortable travel for the Eagles players as part of the collaboration and has further journeys arranged for the players this season.

The partnership will also see Lumo feature as a key sponsor at some of the Eagles’ games in their Vertu Motors Arena home on Scotswood Road, as well as feature across the social channels of the all-time most successful British basketball club.

 

Paul Blake, Managing Director at Seriös Group Newcastle Eagles says, “Not only is it great to have this support from a local brand, but you can’t underestimate the difference it can make arriving to a game feeling physically and mentally well-rested – and being so tall, that’s not always the easiest thing to achieve after a long day’s travelling.

"With that extra bit of space and being comfy on the direct route to London, we’re more likely to perform well. We’re a great match for a great match!”

Martijn Gilbert, Managing Director at Lumo says, “We’re proud supporters of our local teams and are thrilled to be working the Eagles, offering the comfort and convenience necessary for the players to perform at their best. With sports fans frequently travelling across the country to attend games, it’s great to have the Eagles lead the way and champion the greenest and cleanest possible travel to London.”

The partnership with Eagles is not Lumo’s first time supporting the local sports teams. Lumo currently holds partnerships with Premiership rugby team Newcastle Falcons and National League team Gateshead Football Club. So no matter which sport you're fan of Lumo's priority is getting you to every game. Book now to travel with Lumo now!
