Join the pre-match entertainment at Wembley Stadium ahead of the Checkatrade Trophy Final...

The Sky Blues Army will take over Wembley this weekend for the Checkatrade Trophy Final, with Coventry City taking over the tannoy for a 6 minute period pre-match from 1:55pm.

Legendary FA Cup winning Manager John Sillett will be pitchside and introduced to the crowd, returning to the venue where he and George Curtis steered the Sky Blues to victory in 1987. He will also be a guest of the club in the Royal Box, alongside his pre-match role.

Our matchday announcer, John Dalziel from Free Radio, will bring you the City team and good luck messages to the squad and fans from some big Sky Blues figures.

All this will rounded off by a rendition of the Sky Blue Song, which was of course written by Jimmy Hill – with the Jimmy Hill Flag also in attendance at Wembley this weekend.
 
Meanwhile Sky Blue Sam is back after a recuperating spell away in the build up to Wembley, and will be parading pitchside at 12:45pm and again at 1:55pm.
 
We encourage Sky Blues fans to be in their seat early to soak up all of the pre-match atmosphere!
