City on London Supporters' Club concerns

18 March 2013

Sky Blues statement regarding CCLSC concerns over re-arranged Doncaster fixture

Coventry City Football Club is currently working with Coventry City London Supporters' Club which was upset by the decision to move the Sky Blues' home fixture with Doncaster Rovers.

City's clash with Rovers has been re-arranged from Easter Saturday to Good Friday at 3pm, bringing the fixture in line with every other League One game that weekend.

Coventry City chief executive Tim Fisher said: "We have been in conversation with Jonathan Strange and representatives of the London Supporters' Club and we appreciate their frustrations.

"We plan to continue those conversations over the next 48 hours to see if there is a suitable solution for all parties.

"We are aware of, and hugely appreciate, the effort put in by the London Supporters' Club to keep our international fans in touch with the football club from afar, something which was to be celebrated at the Doncaster game.

“However, we were to be the only game on Easter Saturday, giving us 24 hours less rest than all the other teams at a very busy and important time of the season. Something I am sure people understand was not a good situation.

“The game has also been designated a Kids For A Quid fixture and we hope to attract a good crowd for what is clearly an important fixture.”
