There will be over 80 coaches in convey, watch out London, the Villans are coming!
Nicola Keye, Head of Consumer Sales, said: 'The response has been overwhelming and there'll be a tremendous following down in London to support the team. Supporters have been queuing non-stop and some were even here at 2am on Monday morning to make sure they got their tickets! The 'feel good' factor has been amazing and the fact we've sold out in such a short time means this initiative will benefit everyone.'
