With England set to face Ukraine later today in the fourth quarter final of Euro 2020, a bus company in the region is getting behind the side in a range of unique ways.

Go North East, one of the largest bus companies in the region, have painted three of their buses in the colours of the England flag as well as adding a ‘Come on England’ message to each one too.

Drivers throughout today will also be backing the team by wearing England football shirts while out and about in their buses in the hope that Gareth Southgate’s squad can continue their campaign with another victory.

“We were delighted to see England progress into the quarter-finals, and with a bit of luck the good run will continue and football will indeed come home on 11 July,” said Go North East manging director Martijn Gilbert.

"During the pandemic we’ve been running a number extra buses, so fortunately had some already in a plain white colour scheme that we’ve been able to add a simple red stripe and wording to in order to show our support and help support the region as it gets into the national football spirt.

“Of course this is also a great way to highlight buses as the best way to get around our region, including when heading out to watch the match!

“We hope that these light-hearted initiatives can drum up further support for the team as well, and gets the region dreaming of putting an end to 55 years of hurt!”

Anyone heading out to watch tonight’s match can use Go North East buses for just £1 per single journey from 7pm onwards across the region.
