Coleraine players and officials fly out to Slovenia tomorrow morning.

The team will board a 10am British Airways flight ahead of Thursday’s Europa League first qualifying tie with NK Maribor

Under UEFA instructions, the Bannsiders were made to charter a flight. No commercial travel was permitted.

A party of 45 will fly out from Belfast International Airport.

That consists of 30 playing staff, a physiotherapist, primary sponsor Andy Murphy from Event Sec, directors and the social media team.

And the plane will be on standby waiting to fly home immediately after the game.

The team will check out of their hotel before leaving for the stadium and go straight to the airport after the match.

Nothing has been left to chance with a separate dining area set aside for the team.

Staff will set the facilities up, players will eat their meals then depart before staff return to clean up.

Another round of Covid testing was carried out on Monday night and everyone must produce a certificate saying they have passed the test before they can board the plane.
