⚠️ Travel alert – No trains due to national rail strike on 27 July
There is a national rail strike on the day of semi-final in Milton Keynes, so travelling to the match by train will not be possible. If you were planning to take the train, please check the alternative options below. ⬇️
Fans travelling from London should make use of the dedicated National Express service to Milton Keynes on matchday.
Please plan your journey carefully with plenty of time to spare so that you can enjoy the footie to the max without having to worry about getting to the stadium in time.
Gates for this match will exceptionally open at 17:30, and with the Station Square Fan Party in full swing as of 12:00, there are plenty of reasons to make your way to Milton Keynes early!

Do not drive to the stadium as Stadium MK has no on-site parking and you will be asked to turn around. Use the car parks in the city centre or National Bowl instead.
If you have your own set of wheels, driving to Milton Keynes is a great option. The city is conveniently located adjacent to the M1 motorway. The journey from London typically takes about 1.5 hours, but matchday traffic may delay your journey, so allow for plenty of extra time.
