Wycombe Wanderers fans have been asked to ‘check their journeys before they travel’ ahead of the club’s EFL Trophy final against Peterborough United.

The showpiece will take place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, April 7 with a 4.30pm kick-off time.

The match had initially been set for a start time of 3pm, but it was pushed forward by 90 minutes so that Sky Sports, who will broadcast the cup final live, could also air Manchester United vs Liverpool in the Premier League.

The latter will start at 3.30pm.

With the 4.30pm start, Chiltern Railways expect ‘high volumes of passengers to travel to the event’, with it having a changed timetable to ‘cater for the significant number of additional passengers’.

They said: “Customers who are planning to travel to this event using Chiltern Railways services are advised that there will be no trains to Wembley Stadium before 11am.

“An enhanced service with additional and longer trains will operate from High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross to Wembley Stadium from approximately 11:00 and then for the rest of the day - including the return journey after the match. 

“Customers should purchase tickets in advance on the Chiltern Railways website or app to avoid long waits at ticket offices and machines.”

The railway line also confirmed that once the match has concluded, ‘a queuing system will be in place at Wembley’ and despite additional services, ‘it is expected there will be extended waiting times due to the number of customers leaving the venue at the same time.’

They continued: “All additional trains to High Wycombe will start from Wembley Stadium, meaning that minimal capacity will be provided from London Marylebone. 

No Chiltern Railways services will operate between Marylebone – Aylesbury Vale Parkway (via Amersham) all day, with rail replacement buses in place to Amersham for onward connections to central London via the Metropolitan Line.

The London Underground will also plan to operate a half-hour direct service between Amersham and Wembley Park.
