Leeds United fans travelling to Wembley for Sunday's Championship play-off final have been given a warning about 'extremely busy' trains.

Train operator LNER urged fans to arrive at train stations early and said most trains were now fully reserved.

The operator said: "Trains to London King’s Cross on Sunday May 26 are expected to be extremely busy up until 13:00 due to large numbers of customers travelling to the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

"Most trains are now fully reserved and if you are travelling without a seat reservation, you will likely need to stand for your journey. We recommend giving yourself plenty of time to arrive at the station and checking our Travel Alerts or the latest updates before you travel."

Northbound trains to Leeds on Sunday evening will also be very busy and seat reservations are recommended, LNER said.

LNER said:

  • The last northbound train to Wakefield Westgate departs at 21:35.

  • The last northbound train to York departs at 22:05.

  • The last northbound train to Doncaster and Leeds departs at 22:35.

LNER added: "Please remember that not everyone will be going to the game, so please be considerate of our other customers travelling and be kind to our staff who are there to help."
