Boxing fans won't miss a blow with National Express
National Express is running special services to and from Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 28 October so boxing fans aren’t left on the ropes after Anthony Joshua’s big fight.
An estimated 75,000 spectators are expected to be ringside as Joshua takes on Kubrat Pulev but scheduled engineering work by Network Rail means travel could be a challenge for many. Rail upgrade activity on the South Wales Mainline serving London, Bristol and Cardiff means fewer journeys on the day and no trains back to London or Bristol after the main fight (scheduled to start at 10:30pm) finishes.
The UK’s largest coach operator is running direct return services from 18 locations including Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Southampton, all leaving the stadium 45 minutes after the fight finishes with an additional London service departing Cardiff at 1am on the Sunday morning.
National Express Coach Managing Director Chris Hardy said: “The rail upgrade activity is a potential headache for boxing fans that have secured a ticket for the match. We’re making sure they don’t miss a minute of the action by providing travel direct to the stadium entrance and scheduling return services that allow for them to witness the very last punch.”
Adult coach ticket return fares start from just £24 with the option of a 25% discount for groups of four or more people*.
