Rugby League fans given sporting chance of reaching Challenge Cup final
National Express is giving Rugby League fans a sporting chance of getting to the Ladbrookes Challenge Cup Final later this month while the trains are disrupted.
As official coach supplier to Wembley Stadium the UK’s largest coach operator is running direct services to the game at Wembley on Saturday August 26th – where Wigan Warriors will take on Hull FC - while London Euston station is closed, meaning train journeys from the North West to London will be severely impacted.
Fans in the North West wanting to travel to London by train face disruption including: much longer journey times, multiple changes and replacement buses, due to the Euston being closed.
However National Express will be running direct services from Wigan and Hull as well as Salford, Warrington, Leigh, St Helens, Widnes, Bradford, and Leeds, meaning more fans can still go and watch the game live.
Meanwhile the national coach operator is pledging to keep adding seats to services according to demand, so all those who want to travel to the game can.
National Express offers a direct, reliable service with a guaranteed seat right to the gates of Wembley Stadium, with return adult fares starting at £39 and child fares starting at £27.
Coaches are scheduled to arrive at Wembley Stadium at midday leaving plenty of time to enjoy the atmosphere before the 3pm kick-off, while departing services will wait at least one hour after the final whistle has gone before leaving, to ensure fans won’t miss a minute of the game.
National Express Coach Managing Director Chris Hardy said: “The Challenge Cup Final is looking to be a cracking encounter and with disruption to rail services over the August Bank Holiday weekend we are offering a reliable and convenient way for Rugby League fans to get to the game.”
