Barnsley's coach caught fire on their way home from a 1-0 win at Exeter on Saturday - but no one was injured.
The incident took place on the M5 just south of Cheltenham at about 8pm, with a section of the motorway then closed.
The coach was engulfed in flames.
A club statement read: "We can confirm that on the way back from our fixture against Exeter City this evening, our club coach suffered complications and subsequently caught fire.
All players and staff on board were evacuated safely. Everyone is in good health.
We would like to thank the emergency services for their swift response.
The Club will make no further comment at this time and is focused on ensuring the safe return of staff and players.
