Matchday bus services from Market Harborough, Oakham and Market Bosworth – run by Orbit Coaches – will be in operation for the Leicester Tigers match against Italian visitors Calvisano this Saturday and for the Christmas fixture against Exeter Chiefs on Saturday, December 21.
Beat the Christmas shopping traffic and take the hassle out of looking for a parking space by taking the matchday bus services to the big game.
Places should be pre-booked on the club website or by phoning the ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2). Price is £6 return (£5 concessions).
Bookings on the day are £8 return (£7 concessions) but pre-booking is advised to guarantee your place.
All services are scheduled to arrive at the stadium at 2.30pm and depart for the return at 5.30pm.
Routes rely on a minimum number of passengers to continue running and the club will monitor user numbers for games against Calvisano and Exeter so if you know anyone who could benefit from any of these routes, make sure you pass on this information!
