The Potters are using the increase in TV revenue to fund the initiative, in a bid to try and ease the financial burden on fans who actually make the effort of attending away games.

"As a club, we are conscious that following football can be an expensive business, especially at a time when so many people are feeling the squeeze financially," said chief executive Tony Scholes in the club's website.

"We work hard to try and provide our supporters with value for money which is why we have not increased our ticket prices since being promoted to the Premier League in 2008.

"However, we realize how expensive following the club away from home can be for supporters, and we're delighted to be able to offer free coach travel and hope it encourages more of them to give us their fantastic backing away from home."

Buses will leave from the Britannia Stadium for all 19 of the club's top flight matches, starting with their Premier League curtain raiser against Liverpool at Anfield on 17 August.
