The Club are recommending that fans car share or travel by coach or train if possible, while supporters can also take advantage of the free shuttle bus service from Coventry train station to Ricoh Arena which runs every 15 minutes between 11.30am and kick-off.
Free return journeys to the train station will also be available every 15 minutes after the post-match fireworks, with the last bus running at approximately 6.30pm.

Stuart Cain, Managing Director at Wasps, said: “Sunday is set to be a memorable Christmas occasion for thousands of families, and we are keen to ensure that everybody makes the most of the day by planning their journey and arriving earlier than normal.
“Ricoh Arena will be a hive of activity more than two hours before kick-off, so we’d recommend that supporters take advantage of the various attractions that are on offer before and after the match to make it a family day out.
“We have a limited number of tickets left for this match, so would encourage people to book online or call the Ticket Office as soon as possible.”
