Elevate Your Matchday: VIP Football Grounds Travel with Atlas Helicopters


As fervent football fans, we live for the roar of the crowd, the thrill of the game, and the electric atmosphere that only a live matchday experience can deliver. Yet, travelling to and from the various grounds around the country can take up more of your time than you’d like, or have available. Rather than staying home, or watching a live stream of your favourite team, what if we told you that you could transcend the ordinary and turn your football pilgrimage into a VIP adventure? With VIP football grounds travel with Atlas Helicopters, the journey to the match is as extraordinary as the game itself. 

Attending Football Games Isn’t Always Easy

Getting to football games can present various challenges, and these challenges may vary based on factors such as the location of the stadium, transportation infrastructure, and the popularity of the match. Factors that prevent fans from travelling to games include:

  • High traffic congestion on match day leading to significant delays. 
  • Limited parking spaces at stadiums, and securing a parking spot can be a challenge, particularly for urban stadiums.
  • Public transportation can be challenging due to overcrowded trains or buses, delays, and service disruptions. 
  • Inclement weather can make the journey to the stadium uncomfortable. 
  • Large crowds at transportation hubs and around the stadium can pose safety challenges. 
  • Queues at ticket booths or entry gates can lead to delays in entering the stadium. 
  • The timing of matches, especially for midweek games or early kick-offs, may clash with work or other commitments.
  • For some stadiums, there may be limited public transportation options available.

Addressing these challenges will require a combination of improved transportation infrastructure, effective crowd management strategies, and careful planning by both football clubs and local authorities to enhance the overall matchday experience for fans. However, such changes aren’t going to come quickly, and so busy professionals and business owners are likely to want a better experience now – which is exactly why many opt for a charter helicopter. 

Charter A Helicopter To Attend A Football Game

Chartering a helicopter to a football game brings a host of advantages that can transform the matchday experience. The efficiency and directness of helicopter travel stand out as key benefits, allowing fans to avoid ground-level traffic congestion and arrive at the stadium swiftly. With significant time savings, spectators maximise their enjoyment of the match, rather than sitting in crowded roads.

Parking hassles become a thing of the past, as helicopters provide the flexibility to land near the stadium, eliminating the need to find a parking spot. One of the notable advantages is the ability to set a tailored schedule, free from the constraints of public transportation timetables or fixed airline schedules. Charter helicopters offer a luxurious and comfortable journey, providing spacious interiors and personalised services for a premium travel experience.

The convenience of VIP entrance, avoidance of public transportation issues, and the option for group travel further contribute to the appeal of helicopter charters for football fans. Additionally, the scenic views during the approach to the stadium add a memorable and picturesque element to the journey. Helicopter travel accommodates both small and large groups, making it an excellent option for friends, families, or corporate groups attending the game together.

Beyond these practical advantages, chartering a helicopter allows fans to attend matches without being hindered by scheduling conflicts or time constraints. The door-to-door service, in many instances, ensures a seamless journey from pick-up to touchdown at the stadium. Altogether, chartering a helicopter offers a unique, stress-free, and memorable way to elevate the football matchday experience.
