Football club encourages fans to scoot to games

Southampton Football Club is working with Voi Scooters, giving eligible fans discounts on rides as the club continues to collaborate with businesses to create a more sustainable future for its fans and the people of Southampton.


Voi says they will provide a sustainable and convenient travel option for Saints fans travelling to St Mary’s, with a virtual parking bay outside the stadium where scooters can be parked upon arrival.

Voi will also be utilising space at St Mary’s to provide coaching to Southampton residents on scooter travel safety, as well as offering Saints fans unique benefits throughout the season.

Southampton Football Clubs Operations and Sustainability Manager, Caroline Carlin, said: “Partnering with Voi e-scooters forms an important part of the club’s overall sustainability strategy ‘The Halo Effect’. Along with making travel more sustainable we are making every effort to reduce the environmental impacts of our operations and activities. We are proud to be one of the most sustainable clubs in the Premier League and this partnership will continue to promote the club’s commitment to making footballer greener.”

The partnership is part of Southampton FC’s commitment to enriching the lives of fans and the local community through innovating, environmentally friendly ways that fans can travel to home games, reducing the number of cars making the journey to watch their team play.

Jack Samler, Managing Director at Voi UK and Ireland, said: “As the UK’s largest rental e-scooter company, we’re delighted to be partnering with Southampton Football Club to offer fans a cleaner, greener way to travel to the game.

“As fans travelling to games represents 70% of football’s overall carbon footprint, our partnership will help the club achieve its climate change targets by offering them a zero-emissions alternative to unnecessary, polluting car journeys - as well as tackling congestion in the city. Southampton FC has already made great strides in becoming one of the most sustainable football clubs in England, but in working together we can help them, and the local community face their toughest opponent: the climate emergency.”
