The partnership will provide dedicated National Express services from over 50 locations across the UK direct to all major events at Wembley Stadium, including Emirates FA Cup semi-finals and final, EFL play-offs, England International fixtures and shows from some of the biggest music acts in the world.

All Wembley services will arrive straight into the official coach park close to the stadium entrance and are scheduled to not leave until after an event has finished, even if it runs over. Both Wembley Stadium and National Express will be offering travel tickets and combined travel and event packages to major events across web, mobile and all other sales channels.

Chris Hardy, Managing Director and John Boughton, Commercial Director for National Express Coach, were joined by England players to launch the partnership ahead of the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifier against Montenegro: “Alongside our UK coach network, we have a strong track record of providing coach travel to festivals and events across the UK. We’re thrilled to continue to work with Wembley to bring great value, comfortable, convenient and safe travel to their visitors for the next three years. It’s already been confirmed it will be hosting seven UEFA EURO 2020 matches so we look forward to growing a successful partnership.”

James Taylor, Senior Commercial Manager, The FA, said: “We’re delighted to be renewing our partnership with National Express for a further three years and to offer new and exciting services via the Wembley Express. Wembley Stadium is attended by fans all over the UK and the new and improved web and mobile booking services will help fans get to the stadium in a comfortable and timely manner be that for a football, NFL or music event. There are huge benefits to travelling to the stadium via National Express and we look forward to a successful relationship over the next three years.”
