The Sky Blues will now have a CCFC ticket office at the Butts Park Arena for non-matchday ticket operations...
Coventry City Football Club have reached an agreement with Coventry Rugby Ltd to host our non-matchday ticketing operation.
The Sky Blues have enjoyed an excellent start to the 2015/16 League One campaign, winning all three of their league games so far, with City top of the table.
However, due to the success on the pitch, there has been extra demand from supporters for tickets and the club faced problems with the ticketing operation before the Crewe Alexandra game.
After announcing improvements to the match-day ticketing service with the Ricoh Arena yesterday, the Sky Blues have reached a deal to set up a CCFC ticket office at the Butts Park Arena for non-matchday ticket operations.
Chief Executive Steve Waggott said: "We're delighted to get this deal over the line as the club will now have a ticketing presence in a central location to Coventry and we'd like to thank Coventry Rugby Ltd for their help and cooperation.
"We've already made changes to our matchday presence at the Ricoh Arena, which we can't thank ACL enough for, and now this move will vastly improve our non-matchday ticketing service.
"The club will set up our own ticket office at Butts Park Arena which means supporters will now be able to purchase and collect tickets throughout the week in a convenient location.
"The full details of when we will begin our operation at Butts Park Arena and opening times will be confirmed next week in what is another positive step by the club."
Coventry Rugby chairman Jon Sharp said: “We're very happy to help another Coventry City sports club with what is an obvious and practical solution for all concerned.
"We welcome them to Butts Park Arena and we look forward to working with them.”
