Leicester Tigers travel to Cardiff Blues on Friday (kick off 7.30pm) for the historic first rugby match at the new Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff Blues are expecting huge interest in the pre-season friendly from home and away fans and have issued travel advice for supporters wanting to attend the game.

The new state-of-the-art stadium is situated a mile out of the city centre, with regular bus and train services from Cardiff Central Train Station.

It is easily accessible from the M4. Drivers should leave at junction 33, take the exit signposted Cardiff onto the A4232 and continue for six miles.

Tickets are priced at £10 adults and £5 children and are available at www.cardiffblues.com/tickets Tigers fans should select the 'away adult' or 'away junior' drop down box when purchasing their tickets so that they are issued with normal paper tickets. Tickets are also available by calling 0845 345 1400.
