NEWS: Nominate a charity to be supported by the Academy

Under 9s to Under 14s will display charity logos on their shirts...

15 August 2017

As part of Richard Overson’s sponsorship of the Coventry City Academy, Sky Blues fans have the opportunity to choose which charities are supported by the Academy this season.

Lifelong Sky Blues fan Richard Overson has agreed to sponsor the Coventry City Academy from Under 9s up to Under 14s and in a unique step, Richard has kindly donated his sponsorship to promote local and national charities.

The logos of these charities will appear on the shirts for the Under 9s, 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s and 14s this season.

Richard has chosen two UK charities; Parkinson’s UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, two causes close to his heart.  Academy Manager Rich Stevens has also nominated Macmillan Cancer Support to be one of the charities to be promoted as it is a cause close to the heart of a recent Academy player.

These two national charities will feature across the away shirts used by the Under 9’s to Under 14’s age groups, along with another national charity to be shown on the final set of away shirts – which will be chosen by fans.

Six local charities will feature on the front of the Academy home shirts from Under 9s to Under 14s – with all six decided by City supporters.

The charity logos will also feature on:

  • Matchday scoreboard
  • Matchday Programme
  • CCFC Website

All of the local charities will also have the chance of one bucket collection during the 2017/18 season on a first team matchday at the Ricoh Arena too.

To nominate your charity, just follow the steps below:

1. E-mail:​​

2. Include subject line ‘Academy Charity’

3. State the name of your chosen charity in the body of the e-mail (One charity only, one nomination per person)

4. State whether the charity is local or national.

The charities who receive the most nominations will be selected as the chosen charities for the 2017/18 season.

All nominations must be received by 18th August 2017.
