Football: SPORT CONFIDENTIAL - ALL BUSSED UP FOR CUP.

Byline: Edited by Tom HOPKINSON

FA CUP sponsors e.on's Carbonfootyprint.com campaign continues apace with the company now promising to lay on one free bus for each set of away fans in the competition's third round.

The German energy company have linked up with National Express and will provide 32 coaches to bus supporters to and from the games on Saturday week as they bid to reduce the environmental impact of the world's most famous domestic Cup competition.

Hull fans face the longest trip - a 677-mile round-trip to Plymouth. And the brainy lotwho know about stuff like CO2 - that's carbon dioxide for the likes of Confidential and you - reckon that if 50 Tigers fans clamber aboard they'll save around 4tonnes of the matter which, apparently, iswhat it would take to power a house for a whole football season.

The partnership between the two companies will run for the rest of the season.
