Liverpool.

ENGLISH FOOTBALL. Virgin Trains has issued a warning to Liverpool football fans “that there are no realistic options for return train travel from London after the FA Cup Final on Saturday 5 May”, the transport company says.

Major route improvement works by Network Rail over the Bank Holiday weekend will mean extensive route closures, according to Virgin Trains.

“Passengers from Liverpool to London on Saturday 5 May will need to travel via Manchester or Chester, or use Stoke-on-Trent station but the decision by the Football Association for a 17:15 kick-off means there are no options for fans to return north the same day after the game”, Virgin Trains writes in a press release.
