Coventry City Football Club are set to open a new superstore in the city.
The Sky Blues are moving into a store on the Gallagher Retail Park, which will give the supporters the opportunity to buy merchandise, tickets and memberships.
It will also provide a community space for events such as player autograph signings with fans.
The lease on the 5,000 sq ft unit has now been agreed and the club will move in as soon as fit-out work has been completed over the next few weeks. The temporary retail outlet at Arena Park Tesco will close on October 5 in advance of the new superstore opening.
Supporters can still purchase merchandise online at www.ccfcshop.co.uk or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The club also has a telephone ticketing ordering service on 024 7699 2326.
Karen Bennett, head of retail at Coventry City Football Club, said: “We are looking forward to opening at what is a major retail centre in the city.
“It’s a great location with excellent footfall and will offer a full range of merchandise and will hopefully become a hub for supporters. We are planning to hold player signing sessions to help launch the new superstore.
“There will be a few weeks until the new store opens so, in the meantime, we would urge supporters to utilise the website for their orders or, indeed, contact us by phone or email.
“We also really appreciate supporters’ patience while we have been putting these plans in place. We have been working since June to get the right location for this store and we feel we have found that here.”
