Beat the Christmas traffic and queues for parking by using matchday bus services from Market Harborough, Oakham and Market Bosworth for the Leicester Tigers' home game against Exeter Chiefs this Saturday (3.00pm).
Run by Orbit Coaches, all services are scheduled to arrive at the stadium at 2.30pm and depart for the return at 5.30pm.
Places should be pre-booked on the club website or by phoning the ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2). Price is £6 return (£5 concessions). Bookings on the day are £8 return (£7 concessions) but pre-booking is advised to guarantee your place.
In order to maintain the sustainability of the services, routes rely on a minimum number of passengers to continue running. Services will be in place for the Chiefs game while the club monitors the viability of the buses – so if you know anyone who could benefit from any of these three routes, make sure you pass on this information!
