The Men’s Challenge Cup Final will now kick off at 3:07pm to reflect Rob’s link to the number 7 jersey during his distinguished career and since retirement. There will be a minute’s silence in Rob’s memory prior to kick-off before each of the Men’s and Women’s Cup Finals.

The banners will be removed following the end of Abide With Me. We please ask that supporters sitting in those areas respectfully let the banners be unveiled over their seating area and then be removed.

After 7 minutes of each of Saturday’s matches (Women’s, Men’s & 1895 Finals), all supporters are encouraged to celebrate Rob’s legacy and to please stand if they are able and show their appreciation by applauding Rob for one minute.

Rail/London Underground

Wembley Stadium benefits from easy access to three rail / London Underground stations. These are: – Wembley Central Station (Bakerloo Line) – Wembley Park Station (Jubilee & Metropolitan Line) – Wembley Stadium Station (Chiltern Rail) Supporters are encouraged to plan their journeys in advance to avoid disappointment or delay to their travel. All those travelling by rail should plan to arrive at Wembley stations no later than one hour prior to kick-off, to allow sufficient time to walk to and enter the stadium. Post-match, fans are asked to leave the ground promptly and avoid opting for the last train of the day. Please allow for longer journey times from Wembley Stadium to London Euston station due to crowd safety controls for safe station access.

Please note that Avanti West Coast have resourced an additional service which will depart London Euston at 20:08 on Saturday 8 June and is due to arrive into Wigan North Western at 22:35. Any fans with a reservation, or who are still to book their tickets, would be best aiming for this additional service as the three scheduled services will be extremely busy.
