Please note that we will operate the Tigers Buses on the 17th December 2016 15 minutes earlier than normal.  The match starts at 3.15pm, but we are treating it as a 3pm kick off and buses will therefore arrive on Welford Road at 2.30pm. Please be at the bus stop ready to depart based on 3pm kick off times.

 
 
For the 2016-2017 season, Centrebus will be operating the matchday buses to Leicester Tigers from Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Market Harborough and Market Bosworth. Buses will operate one outward journey and will return 30 minutes after the final whistle from Nelson Mandela Park. Standard Centrebus tickets and ENCTS passes are not valid on these services.
 
There are no set timetables for these services, as the times vary based on kick off time. We have included sample timetables below, which indicate times for a 3pm, 5pm and 7pm kick off.
