National Express announce dedicated FA Cup Final services
19 Apr 2012

National Express has announced it will operate dedicated services between Liverpool and Wembley for the FA Cup Final in light of the disrupted rail service to London.

The dedicated coaches will depart Liverpool Coach Station at 10:15am on Saturday 5 May and travel direct to Wembley Stadium arriving at 2:30pm so fans can enjoy the pre-match build up. 

Scheduled engineering work in Edge Hill and between Crewe and Warrington have led train operators to cancel the majority of their services on May 5. Only three services will run from Liverpool, each departing before 8am.

National Express has also promised to provide extra coaches to meet additional demand and ensure that fans can get to the big time in plenty of time for kick off. National Express is the Official Coach Provider to Wembley Stadium and carried over 500 fans to the Everton vs. Liverpool Semi Final clash last weekend.

Andrew Cleaves, Managing Director of National Express said: "We're operating a bespoke service from Liverpool direct to Wembley to ensure fans can reach the FA Cup Final. Our services will run nonstop to the Stadium and drop fans directly outside the gates. If the match over runs for penalties or extra time coaches will delay their departure so fans won't miss a minute of the match."

Return coach services cost £42 for adults or £21 for children and are available to purchase at Liverpool Coach Station, via 08717 818181 or
