Coventry school children to descend on home clash with Portsmouth through Tickets for Schools scheme
School children from across Coventry and Warwickshire are being given the chance to watch the Sky Blues live this Saturday, thanks to a discounted ticketing scheme.
Tickets for Schools is in its fourth season and is run by Coventry City FC and a group of volunteer supporters.
It allows schoolchildren and their families to purchase tickets, through their schools, for a discounted price for certain matches during this season.
The next Tickets for School game is taking place when Mark Robins’ team take on Portsmouth at the Ricoh Arena and access to the scheme will be given to children from St. John’s C of E, Cannon Park Primary, Charter Primary, All Saints, Allesley Hall Primary, Eastern Green Juniors, St. Andrew’s C of E, Leigh C of E, Mount Nod Primary, Park Hill Primary, Templars’ Primary, Whoberley Hall Primary, Telford Juniors, St. Margaret’s, St. Paul’s C of E (Leamington Spa) Briar Hill Infant School, Saint Peter’s Roman Catholic and Shrubland Street Community.
Dan Walker, ticketing manager for Coventry City, said: “This is one way in which we go out into the community to make a positive difference for local schoolchildren.
“For many, taking advantage of Tickets for Schools is the first time they have ever been to a live sporting event and we do see some families returning again and again.
“We do hope that some will become Coventry City fans for life after they have tasted what live football is really like but, also, it is a chance to give some children a one-off, great day out.
“The whole scheme is a real team effort and we have to thank the team of volunteers who go into schools who make it such a success.”
