Rob Burton, Customer Events Strategy Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: “We know that Leicester City fans have been allocated 5,500 seats at the FA Cup fourth-round tie on Friday, and we know that a lot of fans will want to travel by train.

“We’ll be working closely with the football clubs to make sure fans are aware of the additional train services they can use.”
