NEWS: Coventry City confirmed as League One Champions and promoted to the Championship!

9 June 2020

Coventry City have been confirmed as SkyBet League One Champions, winning promotion to the Championship!

The EFL have announced that, following the early ending of the campaign due to the Coronavirus,  the league table will be determined using the unweighted Points Per Game method, meaning the Sky Blues finish clear 1st in the 2019/20 SkyBet League One table.

We are absolutely delighted to win the title and to be promoted to the Championship, following an incredible season for Manager Mark Robins, the Coventry City players and staff and all of the Sky Blue Army.

There has been scintillating and exciting football, and many great moments, performances and victories that will be remembered and celebrated for many years to come as part of this title winning campaign, where the team has only lost three games in the League 1 season – the last being in December.

While undoubtably deserved, the circumstances of our promotion and League 1 title are unique due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has sadly curtailed this campaign. Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this situation, particularly those who have lost loved ones. Our celebrations are tinged with sadness for all those who have lost their lives, and our gratitude is with all of the carers and key workers for their incredible efforts and dedication during this unprecedented time.

Coventry City fans everywhere, the City of Coventry and our local community will rightly want to celebrate the Club’s League 1 victory and our return to the Championship for the first time since 2012. However, we urge fans not to congregate at this time and to continue to adhere to the Government advice around the Coronavirus and social distancing.

The Club will shortly be announcing details of a live, online streamed Promotion Party which fans and players will be able to join in with remotely, so that we can all celebrate our League 1 victory together – while staying apart.  

Further information regarding existing Season Tickets and next season will also be communicated when possible.

Everyone at Coventry City Football Club would like to take this opportunity to thank our fans for their dedication and support throughout this season, whether at ‘home’ or away games up and down the country.  

Together we have all overcome many challenges this season on and off the field and enjoyed fantastic football and great moments.

Today we announce winning the League One Title and promotion to the Championship - it is a great day.

Our fans deserve this, our players deserve this, our staff deserve this, our Football Club deserves this.

Play Up Sky Blues – Going Up Sky Blues!
