There will still be no match-by-match tickets available in Blocks 14, 15, 16 apart from as stated above.

Dave Boddy, Coventry City Chief Executive, said:

“We are pleased that, following positive and co-operative discussions with the Police and the Ricoh Arena, we have been able to relax some of the restrictions in Blocks 14, 15 and 16.

“I would like to thank both the Police and Ricoh Arena for this.

“Many supporters came to us with valid and passionate thoughts and opinions, and we are grateful to them for doing that.

“However, the reasons put forward by the Police in the Safety Advisory Group are still valid and supporters still need to be mindful that safety is paramount.

“The Safety Ground Sports Authority considers the safety risk of standing in seated areas to be significant, and we must take this seriously.

“There will be increased stewarding and increased ticket checks in these areas, and we would ask that all supporters in the stadium sit in the seat that they have purchased a ticket for and adhere to stewarding requests.

“These changes will be monitored during the opening months of the season and reviewed at the end of September.”
