Gateshead FC is delighted to welcome Lumo as our official rail partner.
Lumo is a new rail travel service, travelling exclusively on the East Coast Mainline, connecting Newcastle with regular daily services to London, Edinburgh, Morpeth and Stevenage.
With a 100% electric fleet of high-speed trains that are 6x greener than flying, coupled with a commitment to low fares, Lumo is changing the way we travel while driving a sustainable future for the rail industry.
“Gateshead FC is thrilled to be breaking new ground in our partnership with Lumo, which is the first of its kind for the club,” said Chairman, Neil Pinkerton.
“As supporters and partners of the club over many years, the board of directors know all too well the expense, time and distance that comes with following Gateshead FC in the National League.
“All at the club are looking forward to working with Lumo over the coming season and highlighting affordable travel to supporters who follow us week in, week out.”
“We are delighted to partner with Gateshead FC for the 2022/23 season,” added Alex Jackson, Commercial Analyst at Lumo.
“We are committed to supporting the communities we serve with fast, reliable, and green travel on our 100% electric trains, and we can think of no better way to do that than by supporting local non-league football during their National League campaign.
“Our Saturday train times are ideal for supporters looking to follow their team to London or the wider South East, with our 07:13 and 10:22 taking you to London in under 3 hours, while our 18:27 service to Newcastle gives you plenty of time to get from stadium to station and back to the North East before 21:30.
“We look forward to supporting Gateshead FC and their fans over the coming year.”
