With a bumper crowd expected at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday’s Community Day, Coventry City are advising supporters to get to the stadium early.
Over 26,000 tickets have been sold or given to schools for the fixture against Accrington Stanley, with tickets available for £5 in advance or £10 on the day.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early to ensure they are in the stadium ahead of kick-off at 3pm.
The Fan Village in the Ericsson Exhibition Hall will be open from midday and packed with activities from Sky Blues in the Community, the regular Family Zone, big screen football, player visits and much more, with free entry to the Fan Village.
Meanwhile, turnstiles will be open at the earlier time of 1pm, with music and CCFC videos on the big screen in the build up to kick-off.
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said: “We’re all looking forward to Saturday’s Community Day and have been delighted with the response to this initiative.
“It’s an important game for the team, and Mark Robins and the squad are all looking forward to the match and the support that will be there.
“To make sure that support is in the stadium for kick-off, we are asking that supporters arrive early and leave extra time for their journey to the stadium.
“Ourselves and the Ricoh Arena have been working closely to ensure the stadium is operating at full capacity to cope with the attendance, with all bars and turnstiles open. However, if the majority of fans turn up at 5 to 3 there is no way of getting them all in for kick-off, despite our best intentions.
“Therefore, we’d encourage fans to arrive early, enjoy the Fans Village activities, the food and drink on the concourse too and what will be a great atmosphere.”
Fans can buy tickets for the Community Day game, with all tickets £5 in advance or £10 on the day, now from eticketing.co.uk/CCFC, 0844453 9134 or the Butts Park Arena Ticket Office.
Cash Turnstiles in the East Stand will be operating on the day, with fans again asked to arrive early to ensure they are in the ground for kick-off.
