Leicester Tigers are running matchday bus services on extra routes from Melton Mowbray, Lichfield and Stamford for the derby match against Northampton Saints on Friday.

There are already matchday bus services in association with G&G Travel for Tigers home games on routes from Market Harborough, Oakham, Market Bosworth and Loughborough/Rothley, with the three new services added for the derby date at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Friday, February 11.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm and now even more supporters can enjoy Friday Night Lights without having to search for parking.

Returns fares on all services are £6 on a match-by-match basis, and Tigers season ticket holders receive a discounted rate of £4 when you sign in to your Tigers account online.

The new Melton Mowbray route has stops at Asfordby, Brooksby, Thrussington and Syston on the way to the stadium.

The route from Lichfield takes in Tamworth, Atherstone and Nuneaton.

The Stamford service calls at Empingham, Oakham, Braunston, Tilton on the Hill and Houghton on the Hill.

The evening will also feature an appearance from our regular bhangra dancers and there is live music post-match from resident band Rock Bottom in Final Whistle.

Season ticket holders’ tickets for juniors or as part of a family ticket are automatically upgraded for use by adults for evening fixtures if you believe kick-off is too late for younger fans.
