Coventry City’s home game against Lincoln City has been called off.
Following snow overnight, teams of volunteers and staff from Coventry and the Ricoh Arena worked to try to ensure that areas surrounding the Ricoh Arena were clear of snow. The pitch was in good condition, however snow had drifted into the South Stand which made it dangerous along with areas of the East Stand too.
Combined with the distance that Lincoln City fans were set to travel to the game, the decision was made to call the game off at 9:50am.
There will be information regarding the re-arranged fixture once it is confirmed.
We’d like to place on record our thanks to all staff, volunteers and authorities that made great efforts in the past 48 hours to combat the weather.
