Tickets for Schools scheme gives schoolchildren the chance to see Coventry City live in action over the festive period

11 December 2014

Tickets for Schools, currently in its sixth season, has the Chesterfield game on Sunday, December 28th as the next game...

Schoolchildren across city will get the chance to see Coventry City live in action at the Ricoh Arena this festive period, thanks to the latest installment of a discounted ticketing scheme.

Tickets for Schools is now in its sixth season and is run by Coventry City and a group of volunteer supporters.

The scheme allows schoolchildren and their families to purchase tickets for selected matches at a discounted rate, and has been hugely popular since its inception, with thousands of young football supporters benefitting.

The Sky Blues’ clash with Chesterfield on Sunday, December 28, will be the next Tickets for Schools match, and access to the scheme will be given to children from All Souls Catholic, Bablake Prep, Bablake Juniors, Christ the King, Coundon Primary, Earlsdon Primary, Finham Primary, Grange Farm, Hearsall Community, Hill Farm, Holy Family, Howes, Manor Park, St Augustines, St Osburgs, St Thomas More, Stivichall, and Hollyfast.

Mark Hornby, head of marketing at Coventry City, said: “The Tickets for Schools initiative has proved really successful over the past few years and we’re delighted to be able to continue it.

“It would not be possible without the tireless work of our volunteers who help to organise everything so they deserve a lot of credit for its continued success. 

“It is always fantastic to get kids into the ground at an early age so they can experience the excitement of a match-day and get behind their local team. It would be great to see many of them become Coventry City supporters in the future. 

“We hope the Chesterfield match will be one of our biggest and best Tickets for Schools games yet, with 18 schools involved, and taking place in the period between Christmas and New Year, which is so special, particularly for children.”
