A WEMBLEY special train service direct to the national stadium is being offered to Coventry City Fans for the Checkatrade Trophy final on April 2 (kick-off 2.45pm).
But Sky Blues fans will have to go to Warwick Parkway for the extra services from Chiltern Raiways, or use its usual Sunday service from other stations.
Chiltern Raiways has today issued the following statement…

“To help get everyone to the event quickly and easily we’ve added extra capacity to the services that will transport fans to and from Wembley Stadium station.”
