Virgin Trains install first class seats at Preston North End

Virgin Trains have installed two new first class seats at Deepdale with the aim of giving two Preston North End fans a First Class experience for every match at Deepdale.

The seats have been installed at pitch-side, just a few feet from the dugout in order to give the lucky fans the best view in the ground. The seats will be branded with the Virgin Trains logo and upholstered in ‘PNE blue’, the seats give a taster of what a First Class experience is like on board Virgin Trains services along the west coast.

Fans who want to sit in the First Class seats by the dugout will need to enter the First Class Upgrade competition on Preston North End’s Facebook page each fortnight with a random winner being selected for each home game.

Anna Doran, General Manager at Virgin Trains on the West Coast, said: “At Virgin Trains we always strive to offer the best possible experience for our customers. Working with Preston North End, we have created exclusive seats to offer fans an experience they will never forget. We’re sure they’ll be really popular with fans and hope that those lucky enough to get close to the action at Deepdale have a first class experience.”

Olivia Hanvey, Head of Commercial & Ticketing at Preston North End, said: “It’s fantastic to see the new Virgin Trains dugout seats in place, along with two additional First Class seats – given away each week to allow two lucky fans to experience the game from the eyes of the management. It’s a great opportunity for us and Virgin Trains to highlight our partnership and ensure it continues to go from strength to strength.”
