Coventry City will wear their 2 Tone commemorative Third Kit this Saturday for the away game against Peterborough United, having received approval from the football authorities.
The EFL and The FA gave permission for the Third Kit’s continued use of the ‘Nutty Dancer’ figure, designed by 2 Tone artist John Sims, earlier this week.
This allows Coventry City to wear the ‘40 years of 2 Tone’ Third kit for future games this season, having worn the kit for our televised Kick It Out fixture against Tranmere Rovers.
There has been incredible demand for the kit locally and from around the world, both from Coventry City fans, 2 Tone fans and the general public, resulting in it currently being sold out.
However, we can also confirm that kits will be back in stock in store from wc 11th November (exact date tbc) and that an online pre-order facility will also be available shortly.
Dave Boddy, Coventry City Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted that The FA and the EFL have approved use of an additional ‘logo’, the ‘Nutty Dancer’, on our Third Kit.
“We did not want to remove this from the kit to be able to wear it going forward, so we’d like to thank The FA and the EFL for approving this and for their support of the kit and the important message behind it – in celebrating everything that 2 Tone meant and still means, and the important anti-racism message, which is particularly timely.
“We’re also happy to confirm when the Third Kit will be back in store. The demand was huge for the kit, and the sales were record breaking, so we’re pleased to be able to get this back in stock for not only our fans, but the wider public who are fans of the kit itself and who have also snapped it up.
“Once exact dates are confirmed to us, we will let everyone know.”
