Limited matchday parking

Figure image
Limited parking has been made available for Tigers fans attending Saturday's game against London Irish.

A number of spaces will be available at De Montfort University car park in Mill Lane, which will be open from 1pm. Parking here costs £5.

Unusually both Tigers and Leicester City Football Club will be holding home matches on the same day and supporters are advised to anticipate congestion and heavier than usual demand for parking spaces.

Tigers supporters are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and to use public transport and park-and-ride services wherever possible to reduce traffic before and after kick-off. Fans are also encouraged to arrive as early as possible at Welford Road.

The Leicester City versus Ipswich match is due to kick off at 12.45pm, and would expect to finish around 2.45pm.

The Tigers game against London Irish match is due to kick off at 3pm, and is expected to finish at around 5pm.

The timing of the two matches could not be changed because they each form the final league fixture for the clubs involved, and so have to take place at the same time as all other games in the respective leagues.

Leicestershire Constabulary and Leicester City Council will deploy extra resources to minimise the disruption and to ensure access is maintained to the city’s major facilities.

However, there is expected to be higher than usual traffic flows between 2pm and 3.30pm, and parking spaces near Welford Road will be in high demand.
