NEWS: Oggy tributes on Sunday afternoon against Shrewsbury Town

27 April 2019

There will be tributes to Steve Ogrizovic on Sunday afternoon, for the Coventry City legend's final home game.

After 35 years at the Club, Oggy is hanging up his gloves at the end of the season.

Among several tributes planned, there will be a pre-match guard of honour formed by Coventry City and Shrewsbury Town - the team Oggy joined City from in 1984.

After the game there will be a parade of the pitch by Oggy, to give fans the chance to thank him for his years of service. The current players and staff will also parade the pitch, thanking fans for their superb support this season.

Fans are asked not to go on to the pitch during the game or following the final whistle. While also avoiding committing a criminal offence, not going on the pitch will ensure that Oggy can have a lap of honour ahead of his retirement and that all supporters can show their appreciation for a Coventry City icon. 

If fans are on the pitch, none of the current players and staff nor Oggy will be able to parade the pitch for safety reasons. We thank you for your co-operation in not entering the pitch ahead of the parade.

 

There will be a special edition of the matchday programme PUSB, looking back in-depth at Oggy's time at the Sky Blues over the past 34 years, while there are tributes from Manager Mark Robins amongst others.

There will be other tributes throughout the day that will be a surprise for Steve, so make sure you join us in giving Oggy a memorable day and the send off that he deserves!
