Wembley Stadium furthers major events partnership with Birmingham coach service
National Express has renewed its partnership with Wembley Stadium for a three-year period until 2023.
Wembley Stadium attracts more than two million visitors a year to some of the biggest events in sport, music and entertainment.
The partnership will provide Birmingham-headquartered 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 to England International fixtures.
All Wembley services will arrive 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.
Chris Hardy, managing director and John Boughton, commercial director for National Express Coach, were joined by England players to launch the partnership ahead of this Thursday’s UEnatiFA EURO 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.
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.”
