    Derbyshire..but by time I mess with getting to train station..quicker to drive..M1 M6 A444 or M1 M42 Booked car park already..£10 bit steep.But I will get home quicker so Dog will be happy.

            Birmingham Airport is about half way between Birmingham and Coventry. it's a short train journey to Coventry and then bus/taxi/train to the ground. If there's a group of you, taxi from the airport to the ground would be reasonable.

              Heard the trains not running on match days?

                  I am in the lottery for tickets but looks like I will not be able to make the game. If I am successful am more than happy to get the 2 tickets then forward them on to a Munster fan! Let me know if ur interested - am on a different time zone at the moment so may not get back to you straight away.......

                    Champions Cup semi-final v Saracens confirmed for Saturday 20th April, Ricoh Arena kick off 3pm
                    Day Return Bus London to the Ricoh Arena

                    With major engineering works planned Easter weekend in the UK (see below for full details), we are running our own private day return bus from London to the game as follows:

                    Saturday April 20th
                    Departure: Hammersmith Apollo 10.30am
                    Arrive: Coventry 12.30pm approx.
                    Match kick-off: 3pm
                    Return: 7pm (Drop off points back at Hammersmith (Apollo) and Central London (should be back by 9pm approx)

                    Price (Bus Only):
                    Early Bird (available until Tuesday 9th April): Adults £25 return (£20 one way)/ 16 &Under 1/2 price
                    Regular Price (From Wednesday 10th April): Adults £30 return (£25 one way)/ 16 &Under 1/2 price

                    Match Tickets:
                    With a capacity of over 32K, it is not envisaged that obtaining a match ticket will be difficult. We should be able to help anyone who cannot obtain tickets themselves or who would like to sit with our wider exiles group. Please let us know if either apply.

                    Booking:
                    To secure your place on the bus, please email us at mrsclondon@gmail.com stating the number of places required. You will receive an email with how to pay and you will have 3 days to make payment to secure your booking.


                    Planned Engineering Work Details Easter Weekend:
                    **NB- Major Rail Engineering works that weekend have London Euston closed 19-22 April meaning no direct train service from London to the game(normally 55 minutes)**

                    Trains from Marylebone to Leamington Spa, change for a train to Coventry will be 1hr 42 minutes. These re very limited capacity services. (Please note Coventry Rail station is located in the city centre, 6 miles from the ground. Please allow 20 minutes via taxi once in Coventry to get to the ground). There.is an infrequent train service between Coventry and Coventry arena but capacity is limited and we would recommend to use alternative options

                    This is NOT an official MRSC London bus. This is a private bus organised by people who were members of the official MRSC, but who have subsequently resigned.

                    Sadly the MRSC London branch no longer officially exists.

                      It is, nevertheless, an excellent initative- and welcome, I’m sure to many who’d like to travel en made to the game.

                          You are correct that it is private and not an MRSC London venture etc.


                          Neither Munster or MRSC have closed the branch though.

                            Why are they using the MRSC mailing list and "MRSC London" in their email address though?

                                So we've established that this isn't an official MRSC initiative, but the organisers are using the MRSC mailing list and using an email address with MRSC in it.

                                Wouldn't that be misrepresentation?
