NEWS: Join in our Remembrance activities this Saturday

28 October 2019

Coventry City fans can play their part in the Club’s Remembrance Fixture this Saturday.

Fans are being asked to submit photos or names of Coventry City fans who have served in the Armed Forces that they would like to be remembered on Saturday

The Sky Blues face Accrington Stanley at St Andrew’s on Saturday, with the game being the closest home league game to Remembrance Sunday.

Photos of these fans, and former players who served in World War One and Two, will be displayed on the scoreboard during the minute silence ahead of kick-off and throughout the day, as we remember the sacrifices they made for our freedom and safety.

The names of fans and players being remembered will also be taken onto the pitch by Coventry City Captain Liam Kelly for the minute silence, further strengthening the link between our past and present.

To submit a name or a photo, please email by 5pm on Thursday 31st October.

Coventry City fans now in our Armed Forces today are also asked to send their photos and names to us, so we can acknowledge those Sky Blues fans who continue to serve our country.

Ahead of kick-off, the Coventry Blitz anniversary will also be commemorated, with Saturday being the last home game before 14th November.

Armed Forces personnel can get discounted tickets for the game, and all Coventry City home games. Coventry City is also part of the Tickets for Troops scheme - details here.
