Fans planning to head to Wembley on Monday are being urged to check before they travel. With Network Rail due to carry out planned improvement works to the West Coast Main Line this weekend, there will be fewer trains than normal down to London.
Both Virgin Trains and London Northwestern Railway will be running direct services to London with the first trains due to depart from Coventry at 0644, 0721 and 0744, followed by three trains per hour for the rest of the morning.
London Northwestern Railway is also running a matchday special leaving Coventry for Wembley Central at 1110 (arriving 1239), then returning from Wembley at 1837 (arriving Coventry at 1956).
Virgin Trains will similarly be running an additional to London Euston departing Coventry at 0912, calling at just Rugby. The return service is due to depart London Euston at 19:43.
With services expected to be very busy, supporters are advised to book in advance and check before they travel, ideally avoiding some of the earlier trains in an attempt to spread the expected demand for seats throughout the full morning service.
Virgin Trains staff will be on hand at Coventry station, with a queuing system in place to ensure everyone is able to board their services safely and in a timely manner.
Chiltern Railways will also be running services to from Warwick Parkway to and from London Marylebone.
