Coaches and Minibuses need to adhere to the Police & Traffic Commissioner's guidelines, which are invoked for all Cat B Games and above. This is a high risk Cat ‘C’ match and all partners agencies involved are eager for the event to run smoothly.

·         Coaches are not to stop within ten miles of the venue, either en route to or on departure from the
event unless prior agreement is obtained from the local police liaison officer.
·         Coaches are not to set down or uplift passengers at any unauthorised locations without prior
permission of the police.
·         Operators are asked to comply with these guidelines on a voluntary basis. However if the police
inform the Traffic Commissioner of any failure on an operator’s part to comply with them the
Commissioner will consider applying them as a formal condition to that operator’s licence under the
authority of Section 16(3) of the Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981.
