17th August 2015

Following on from TFL’s announcement of another round of tube strikes, one which falls on the night of Friday Night Lights. London Skolars have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that fan’s journey’s to the ground are as stress free as possible. Please see all the key details for travel below.

  • Tube restarts at 9 p.m on 28th August
  • Alternative travel arrangements by train and bus
  • Skolars arrange free bus from Alexander Palace Station to and from the ground

Whilst the Underground is a very important method of transport for the city, London is also blessed with some fantastic bus routes and even better Overground services.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and we hope that the tube strikes will be postponed. In the event that the proposed strike does go ahead, the club has come up with a travel guide for fans who may be travelling from popular destinations in London.

Number 29 Bus serves the route from Trafalgar Square directly to Wood Green. Approx 1 hour

Number 141 Bus begins it route at London Bridge and ends in Wood Green. Approx 1 hour

Number 243 Bus begins at Waterloo Station and also ends in Wood Green. Approx 1.15 hours

Bus Travel from Edgware/Stanmore Area:

Overground Services:

Bus Travel in North London:

For all those who travel to Alexandra Palace or White Hart Lane Station on the Overground. Both stations are served by the W3 bus which will drop you right on the corner of the Stadium – Stop is called New River Sports Centre.

The club is also working partnership with Arriva Buses to arrange a free direct bus from Alexandra Palace Station straight to the ground on the night starting from 4:30pm with the last bus departing there at approximately 7:30pm.

Whilst we appreciate the inconvenience that the proposed tube strike may cause, we hope that the above is of use to all the Rugby League Family who are planning to celebrate the start of their Challenge Cup Weekend at Friday Night Lights.

The pre-match entertainment begins at 4pm:

  • Master’s Festival Fixtures
  • London Skolars U16’s v’s East Leeds U16’s

The Kingstone Press League One Fixture between London Skolars and North Wales Crusaders takes centre stage and kicks off at 8pm. The Beer Festival will be open from 5pm serving a selection of real ales from our sponsor Caveman Brewery. We look forward to seeing all RL fans at this great event!

The 10th year of Friday Night Lights promises to be the most diverse and exciting ever, tickets are still available online at
