Fans are being urged to arrive early for the JPT Area Final...
Coventry City fans are being urged to arrive early for tonight's Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final against Crewe Alexandra.
Advance ticket sales have already tipped over the 30,000 mark – surpassing the JPT’s previous record for a match outside the overall final which was 29,901 when Southampton took on the MK Dons in 2010.
The doors at the Ricoh Arena open at 6pm with Sky Blue Sam entertaining the crowd early on by giving away football's in the crowd.
The family zone will also be providing plenty of activities as usual, whilst we will be showing all the highlights from the previous rounds of the Johnstone Paint Trophy on the big screen.
Because of the large number of supporters coming to the game, the club is urging fans to make sure they arrive in plenty of time.
Ticketing manager Dan Walker said: “This is yet another fantastic landmark and we are delighted that we are set to break the competition record for a match other than the overall final.
“With such a big crowd, however, it is definitely going to be busy at the turnstiles and I would strongly urge supporters to get here early.
“It means they can soak up the atmosphere but also we can get everyone in their seats well in time for kick-off.”
Those fans who have bought a ticket for the JPT Area Final at the Ricoh Arena are reminded that they can get an additional £5 off a 2012/13 home shirt, meaning adult shirts are £15 and kids’ shirts are £10.
