Update: Matchday bus services 2016/17

Figure image
Leicester Tigers are delighted to confirm that a number of matchday bus services will return for home games in the new season.

The matchday services will be run by Centrebus and feature routes from Market Bosworth,  Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray and Oakham to Welford Road. Please note there are some changes to the previous services routes. All services are scheduled to arrive outside Welford Road around half an hour before kick-off.
Timetables and ticket prices will be confirmed soon and the services will begin for the match against Wasps on Saturday, September 10. Services on this day will run ahead of normal schedules to allow all supporters to visit the attractions and activities at Tigers In The Park which is organised for the opening home game of the Aviva Premiership season. Timetables will be advertised in the News section of the club website, with links from social media platforms.
Please note that the services are unfortunately NOT available for the pre-season fixture against the Ospreys on Friday, August 26.
Thank you to all supporters who registered their interest in using matchday bus services and assisting the club and the bus company in preparing the routes and timetabling.
Centrebus would like to get in contact with the supporters who have expressed an interest in the service.

Unfortunately Centrebus are unable to provide the services previously used on the Nuneaton, Coalville and Loughborough routes. We do, though, still hope to be able to confirm a service for these routes but we need more feedback and details from supporters who would like to use those services. If this is of interest to you, or any friends or family, please access the link by clicking here or contact the Tigers ticket office by phoning 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or email on [email protected].
