Branson wants Cup final switch

Chelsea face Liverpool at Wembley but fans may struggle to get there and back due to maintenance on the rail network, and Virgin are a key partner of the Merseysiders.

“We have a strong relationship with Liverpool Football club and twice recently have worked with them and Network Rail to bring many fans to Wembley,” said Branson in a letter emailed to the Liverpool Echo.

“On this occasion we would ask the FA to look again at the timing of the game.”
