EFL sponsor Sky Bet announces that it will refund Blackpool fans who are making the 642-mile round trip journey to Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.

EFL sponsor Sky Bet has announced that it will refund Blackpool fans who are making the 642-mile round trip journey to Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.

Around 30 Seasiders supporters are believed to have travelled to Home Park in one of the longest trips in the English professional divisions this season.

Due to the fans' commitment to making the long journey on a weekday, the league sponsor has decided to provide the incentive as part of its new Away Days initiative.

In addition to those onboard the official supporters bus, Sky Bet has announced that it will also make the travel refund available to other Blackpool fans making the journey, upon receipt of their match ticket and travel costs.

Sponsorship manager David Tweed told Sky Sports News: "The thousands of miles that away fans travel each season following their teams so often goes unrecognised, let alone unrewarded."

Blackpool currently sit seventh in League One, while Plymouth are 20th in the table.
