Coventry City face Oldham this Saturday, and it will be another busy matchday for Sky Blues in the Community.

Around 500 children will be attending the game for free, having taken part in holiday courses, after school activities and player development centres with SBitC. Some of these children will also be lucky enough to take part in some unique matchday experiences at the game against the Latics, including a pre-match stadium tour and forming the guard of honour as the two teams come out.

Also, winners of the Respect, Star Player and Coaches awards from the popular holiday courses will be showcasing their skills on the pitch at half-time. At the same time, we will also be welcoming Coundon Court FC’s Frame Footballers onto the pitch for penalties against Sky Blue Sam. 

Frame Football is a new and unique version of football for disabled people who use Walker Frames, giving them the ability to play and enjoy the beautiful game safely and competitively. FA Charter standard club Coundon Court FC formed the first Frame Football team, and will be welcomed to the Ricoh Arena as they celebrate the arrival of brand new frames.
