Ahead of the Argentina vs Tonga rugby game in Leicester on Sunday 4 October, East Midlands Trains has issued travel advice for its customers.
Hundreds of extra seats have been provided on trains between London and Leicester before and after the game and more staff will be available at stations to help customers with their travel.
Services are expected to be very busy across the weekend with a variety of matches taking place. All customers are advised to allow extra time for their travel and it is recommended that they arrive at the station 30 minutes before their scheduled departure time wherever possible. Customers should also allow extra time if they need to collect tickets.
Neil Micklethwaite, Customer Experience and Commercial Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming fans to Leicester station on Sunday. We’ll have extra staff on hand to provide help and we’ve also worked with Leicester City Council to arrange an Argentine Tango display at the station from 12.30 to bring a taste of Argentina to the city.
“We are expected services before and after the match to be busy and we’ll be providing extra seats on a number of our services between London and Leicester. We would however strongly advise all customers to allow extra time for their journey and make sure they get to the station in plenty of time.”
East Midlands Trains has also launched a special match day voucher offering a discount on food and drink on its trains. On presentation of a valid train ticket, customers will receive a 50p discount from the trolley or buffet bar, and this will be valid on all England match days and Leicester match days.
