Royal British Legion welcomed guests at the Ricoh as we mark Remembrance Weekend...

The Sky Blues will be welcoming collectors from the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal to the Ricoh Arena when we face Scunthorpe United on 12th November, as we mark Remembrance Weekend.

The club were present as the Poppy Appeal was launched in Coventry city centre last month, and members of the armed forces and appeal volunteers will be selling poppies around the Ricoh on Saturday.

Members of the Armed Forces will be represented on the pitch before the game, while the Sky Blues squad will display the poppy on their shirts. A poppy wreath will also be laid before the match.

The Family Zone will have activities in line with Remembrance Weekend and occasion will be marked in the matchday programme. 

As with all Sky Blues home league matches, serving members of the Armed Forces will be able to get reduced price tickets at the concession rate. 

Every £1 you donate for a poppy goes towards a wide range of services and support for our veterans, service men and women and their families. You can learn more about the work of the Royal British Legion HERE, or on Twitter @PoppyLegion.
