Coventry City’s Junior Sky Blues membership have reached the highest number of members since the 2010/11 season!
JSB Memberships went off sale earlier this week for the current season, with a final total of 1837 JSB Members.
This beats every Membership total in each of the past seven seasons of the JSB Membership.
This means that it is the highest ever total of members in the new format of the Junior Sky Blues.
In 2010/11, there were 2018 members of the Junior Sky Blues when there was one type of Membership for all JSBs aged Under 16. In 2011/12, the Membership was re-launched with Dribblers, Keepers, Wingers and Strikers categories providing more tailored benefits to different ages of JSBs.
The JSB’s were founded in 1970, which makes it one of the oldest junior supporters clubs in the country. Junior Sky Blues Under 13 were able to get a FREE Season Ticket anywhere in the stadium for the 2018/19 season, while JSBs Under 16s received big discounts on their ticket too.
JSB’s also received a membership pack, including vouchers, certificates, welcome letter and their membership card – as well as a free CCFC gift, and an invite to the annual JSB Party. JSBs also have the chance to apply to be a mascot on matchday.
The JSB Party was held at the Ricoh Arena earlier this month and was a huge success – attended by around 1600 supporters and the Sky Blues squad. There were a range of activities, provided by the Family Zone volunteers and Sky Blues in the Community amongst others, and you can see photos from the event here.
Dave Boddy, Chief Executive at Coventry City, said: “It’s fantastic to see the regular year-on-year increase in Junior Sky Blues Members, and that we now have the highest number of Members in the new format of the JSB Membership.
“Junior Sky Blues are the future of the Football Club, which is why the increase of the Membership should be celebrated by everyone.
“The JSB Membership provides a fantastic range of benefits for young supporters, such as the free Season Ticket for Under 13s, to help them support their club and long may that continue.”
