Before the match, alongside the normal timetabled services, Greater Anglia will run an additional service which will depart Cambridge at 11.08 calling at Dullingham, Newmarket, Kennett, Bury St Edmunds, Thurston, Elmswell, Stowmarket and it is scheduled to arrive in Ipswich at 12.26.

After the match, Greater Anglia will run two additional services.

The first will depart Ipswich at 17.18 calling at Ely, Cambridge North and is scheduled to arrive in Cambridge at 18.31. An additional service between Ipswich and London Liverpool Street will run at 17.22 calling at Manningtree, Colchester, Marks Tey, Kelvedon, Witham, Hatfield Peverel, Ingatestone, Shenfield, Stratford and London Liverpool Street.

Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Services and Train Presentation Director, said: “We know this match is very important to many of our customers, which is why we’re running additional trains. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend, and there will be extra members of staff helping people with their journeys.

“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel.

“Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”

Customers are advised to use the full length of trains and platforms.
