Great Western Railway has announced that they will be running 22 trains to help get fans home after Wales v England in the Six Nations this coming Saturday.
The train operator is also warning passengers that they may have to queue for trains immediately after the game.
Those travelling to Wales v England at the Principality Stadium at 16:45 are being advised to allow extra time to enter the ground, and to travel early, with services immediately before the game expected to be very busy.
After the end of the game, GWR will provide eight Intercity Express Train services from Cardiff to Swansea – meaning 5,000 seats will be available. They will also run 14 train services towards Bristol, providing another 5,000 seats.
Those coming from further afield are also reminded to check the time of their last train home.
What did the officials say?
GWR Operations Director Rob Mullen said:
“With bigger, more spacious Intercity Express Trains in service we are able to provide many more seats than for previous games.
“But Cardiff Station itself can only accommodate so many people at once, and a queueing system is needed to allow customers to board trains safely.”
