Following the sad news of Bury's demise and their team not competing SkyBet League One, the league has been reduced to 23 teams.
This has meant our games against Bury on Saturday 21st September at Gigg Lane and on Thursday 26th December at St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium being cancelled.
While obviously the anguish and distress of fans of Bury is great and unimaginable, we know many of our fans will be disappointed that these games will not be taking place, in particular the traditional Boxing Day fixture.
Coventry City is under no obligation to refund fans who bought a Season Ticket based around 23 home league games - this situation is completely out of our control, and is covered in our Customer Charter and Season Ticket Terms & Conditions.
However, we felt it was right to do something for our supporters who have committed to a Season Ticket, paid their hard-earned money and are now missing out through no fault of their own.
Therefore, all 2019/20 Season Ticket holders will receive a £13* discount on their Season Ticket next season - essentially a free game in 2020/21 to make up for missing out this year.
We're unable to provide a monetary refund this year due to budgets being set and the financial consequences there would be for us this season, but we are happy to commit to providing the discount for fans next season.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with Bury FC, their staff, players and their supporters at this time.
* Based on Adults - Concessions, Juniors etc will receive the appropriate price per game refund.
