Coventry City have announced plans for showing the Checkatrade Trophy to fans at Saturday’s Legends Day home game with Peterborough United.

Last Sunday, the Sky Blues secured the trophy with a 2-1 win over Oxford United, with goals from Gael Bigirimana and George Thomas in front of over 43,000 City fans at Wembley.

From 11am, the North Stand concourse will be opened for fans to have a photo with the Checkatrade Trophy.

At 2pm, the Trophy will then be taken to the Premium Lounge where our former players will be enjoying Legends Day in hospitality.

At 2:45pm, once the team has finished their warm up, the Trophy will be brought out onto the Ricoh Arena pitch.

With the squad concentrating on the match versus Peterborough, Club President and 1987 FA Cup winning coach John Sillett will bring out the Trophy along with Richard Stevens, Manager of the Sky Blues Academy – which produced the two City goalscorers and 8 of the squad last Sunday. 

The trophy will return to the Premium Lounge post-match, ahead of going to the EFL Awards on Sunday night. 

The Club will be taking the Trophy out and about in the community during the upcoming months to meet Sky Blues supporters – so keep checking our website and social media for details.
