Help us to help you with matchday buses

Figure image
Time is running out for supporters interested in using the matchday bus services to Leicester Tigers home fixtures to register their interest.

Tigers are investigating the introduction of a new bus service to Welford Road for the 2016/17 season, but the club needs the help of supporters in gauging levels of interest by Friday (August 6) before we can confirm any route.

The new service would replace the T1-T5 buses previously run by Arriva.

To help us in our discussions with the bus companies and in our planning for the new season, we ask that any supporters who have used the matchday services, or would be interested in any of the routes, to help us in providing some details. If we do not have the demand for places then we cannot guarantee the services.

Last season, services ran on the following routes:
Market Harborough – Kibworth – Fleckney – Great Glen – Welford Road
Oakham -  Uppingham – Houghton on the Hill – Bushby – Leicester St Joseph’s Church – Welford Road
Nuneaton – Hinckley – Sapcote – Stoney Stanton – Huncote – Narborough – Welford Road
Market Bosworth – Newbold Verdon – Desford – Leicester Forest East – Welford Road
Melton Mowbray – Ashfordby – Thrussington – Rearsby – East Goscote – Syston – Thurmaston – Welford Road

In previous seasons there was also a service from Coalville and there has been interest from supporters in a potential service from Loughborough.
If you are interested in any of these routes, then please click here and fill in your name, Tigers Reference Number, bus service information and your contact details.
Alternatively, you can email the Ticket Office Team at [email protected] or phone us on 0116 319 8888 (option 2).
The information gathered will help us in our discussions with the bus company to hopefully secure the matchday services for next season.
Please note that the matchday services are operated by the bus companies and not by the club. Details of fares and timings will be provided only when any agreement has been reached.
