Foot­ball adds to rail de­mand

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Eurostar has re­ported strong book­ings for the Euro 2016 tour­na­ment as foot­ball fever kicks in.

Over the past few weeks the high-speed train op­er­a­tor has seen a surge in ticket sales, with Fri­day, June 10, prov­ing to be the busiest day – when the hosts open the tour­na­ment against Ro­ma­nia in Paris.

Ni­co­las Petro­vic, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Eurostar, said: “We have seen an un­prece­dented de­mand from foot­ball sup­port­ers keen to get the Euros by train. With our city-cen­tre to city-cen­tre ser­vices and a brand new sta­teof-the art fleet of trains, we are ideally placed to carry fans from the UK di­rect to the heart of the ac­tion.” The strong book­ings fol­low a chal­leng­ing first quar­ter of the year.
