Coventry City’s matchday programme – PUSB – has picked up a hat-trick of awards for the 2014/15 edition.
The matchday magazine now has 13 awards in 11 seasons after being labelled best programme by the North West Programme Club and the Midlands Programme Club as well as being named runner-up by Independent View.
Carl Newell, Coventry City’s publications editor, is responsible for the programme design alongside Curtis Sport and Blue Chilli, while the editorial was put together by Head of Communications Kieran Crowley and Club Journalist Matt Joyce, with contributions from communications assistant Tom Bloomfield, historian Jim Brown, Lee Corden (of Advent), Leigh Edwards and Matt Roper.
Carl said it was another proud achievement. “We have, at all times, maintained a very high standard for the programme,” he said. “Everyone who has worked on last season’s edition should be extremely proud of the product we have delivered to supporters.
“The awards are great to win but, ultimately, the programme is designed and written to keep the supporters entertained and informed so it’s great for them to know they are getting great value for money.
“We introduced some new features last season that worked really well – we even had national media exposure for our Changing Places feature where a member of the first team squad discussed who they would like to be and why.
“But, as we’ve shown down the years, we never sit back and rest on our laurels. We always get together in the summer and make sure we develop new ideas for the coming season in order to give the supporters something fresh.”
