Coventry City Ladies will warm-up for their FA Women’s Cup fourth-round tie with a fundraiser at Tony Mowbray’s first match. 
 
Players from the Ladies’ junior and senior teams will be at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, when their male counterparts take on Port Vale, to mix with supporters and raise money for the club.
 
The fundraiser coincides with International Women’s Day, which takes places on March 8 each year, and is marked by thousands of events held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements.
 
Craig Nicholls’ side then travel to Stoke City Ladies for their cup tie on Sunday, before facing off with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the County Cup semi-final on Wednesday.
 
But the club could not continue to compete at such a high level without generous donations from such fundraisers. 
 
Andy Stickley, club secretary from Coventry City Ladies, said: “As well as vital contributions from key sponsors and supporters, the club relies on fundraising to operate both our junior and senior teams.
 
“It is always a great opportunity when we get to link up with the men’s team and the profile and support that goes with it.
 
“We will be around the ground all day to encourage supporters to come and talk to us to find out more about the club.
 
“We have experienced tremendous success in recent years, both on the pitch with the senior team and with the development of our junior programme and engaging more youngsters with the sport.
 
“But we are ambitious in wanting to drive the club on to the next level and International Women’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to raise money, and awareness about what we are doing.”
