It’s just a matter of days before the long-anticipated sports event, the Africa Cup of Nations 2019, commences. You have to admit that, even if you are not the biggest football fan in the nation, there’s a tiny bit that longs to see how our Egyptian team will fare in the 32nd edition of the tournament.

If you are a devoted game-goer who knows the whereabouts of every stadium in Egypt, you know what to do, but if you happen to be a first-timer, we’ve helped you out with several articles; from telling you guys all there is to know about the tournament, to our sister site, Cairo Gossip, publishing a guide to those looking to purchase tickets, and so much more.

Today, we are here to tell you that Swvl will have you covered when it comes to transportation. Since a game day is a long day, you don’t want to end up searching high and low for your car in the stadium’s parking lot, let alone deal the heavy traffic that will start miles away from your destination. Do yourself a favour and count on Swvl, the official sponsor of Africa Cup of Nations 2019, which is prepared with a fleet of buses to provide hassle-free, affordable travel, to and from the stadium at a flat rate of 10LE per ride. Swvl buses also have a dedicated parking area for their fleet close to the stadium.  All you have to do is download the SWVL App from the Apple Store or Google Play. Once you open the app, you’ll find a “Where to” option, click on it and choose the game you’re headed to. From there, you will be redirected to a different tab where you can select your pick-up location and confirm your booking.

Going with the gang? No worries, Swvl also gives you the option to request a private bus. After downloading the Swvl app, you’ll find a “swipe to explore” option at the bottom of the page. Press on it, then scroll down until you find a button that says “Request a private bus” (there are two types of private buses to choose from), click on it and then select the destination that you would like to be picked up from. You’ll also be asked to select the date and time and, for final confirmation, you’ll be asked to pay in advance through Fawry.

It is safe to say that Swvl is the cheapest and most convenient way to get to and from the AFCON matches. Keep your spirits high, and enjoy!
