Coventry City can confirm Phase 2 of their Ricoh Return Memberships for the 2021/22 season!
After the Ricoh Return Membership sold out to its 8000 capacity, a further 2000 Ricoh Return Memberships will be made available in Phase 2.
The 2000 Memberships available in Phase 2 of the Membership will have a lesser priority in the return to stadiums than those sold in the first 8000 – however, the Sky Blues are still hopeful that these fans will be able to return immediately, alongside the first 8000, subject to Government restrictions.
All other details regarding the Ricoh Return Membership and prices will remain the same in Phase 2 of the sales as they were in the initial Phase 1 stage.
Phase 2 Ricoh Return Memberships will go on sale at 10am on Friday 30th April – available online only at eticketing.co.uk/CCFC.

10,000 would represent around 30% of the Ricoh Arena capacity. While the Prime Minister previously indicated all COVID restrictions would end on 21st June in his roadmap, further conversations with the EFL, following their dialogue with Government, have indicated that this may not be the case. Therefore, the Club will take a cautious approach to sales until the situation is made clearer by the Prime Minister and the Government.
Phase 2 Members will only be able to attend games when restrictions allow for an attendance above 25% of capacity.
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:
“We’re delighted to be able to make these additional Memberships available for sale in Phase 2, following the huge demand from supporters.
“There has been huge excitement and anticipation already for our return to Coventry and for the 2021/22 season, and we would urge fans to purchase their Membership as soon as possible.
“The Phase 1 of the Membership covers the first 25% of capacity, but this next Phase takes us up to around 30% of capacity.
“While Phase 1 Members will get priority in terms of returning back, we hope that the relaxing of restrictions would allow us to welcome both Phase 1 and Phase 2 Members back immediately.”
To purchase, please visit www.eticketing.co.uk/CCFC from 10am on Friday 30th April. Fans buying a Season Ticket are reminded to select 'Membership with Seat' when buying.
For any help when buying, please contact email@example.com or call 0333 321 31 34 (Mon-Fri: 9am-5pm.)
All Season Ticket holders seats from 2018/19 will continue to be reserved until Coronavirus restrictions are lifted (until at least 21st June) to ensure fans who may not wish to buy currently while there is the possibility of restrictions do not lose their preferred seats. Those fans are still required to purchase before capacity is reached to attend.
Adult supporters will be able to buy a Membership with Season Ticket for just £299 - purchasing a Season Ticket through your Ricoh Return Membership will be the cheapest way of supporting the Sky Blues at all matches next season that are open to supporters.
Supporters who had a Championship Club Membership in 2020/21 or a Season Ticket in 2019/20 will also receive a shop voucher when they purchase their Membership as an additional thank you following the impact of COVID on those seasons – this will be a £25 voucher for those who bought an Adult/Concession package, or £10 for Under 16s. Fans will have until the end of 2021 to use this voucher.
Due to the uncertainty of social distancing measures/limited capacities, the Club has chosen to suspend Premium Zone seating price category for the 2021/22 season – this will be reintroduced in the 2022/23 season. In other changes, the Family Zone area will now move to Block 33/34 from Blocks 23/24.
Blocks 27, 28, 29 and 30 of the North Stand will be available to purchase in.
Prices for the Ricoh Return Club Membership are:
Adults - £210
Concessions - £175
Young Sky Blue – £105
Under 16 - £66 (including a JSB Membership)
Under 13 - £25 (including a JSB Membership)
Members of the Ricoh Return Membership will also receive other benefits, including having the exclusive option to purchase a 2021/22 Season Ticket ahead of General Sale for the following additional price:

By purchasing a Ricoh Return Membership you will be supporting the Club financially during this time and helping Mark Robins prepare the Sky Blues team for our return to Coventry.
Until the Club has fully confirmed details from authorities of how fans will be able to return to stadiums and the capacities allowed, Season Tickets will not be on General Sale – only to Ricoh Return members.
Ricoh Return Members will receive priority access when supporters return to stadiums, though for fans who buy in Phase 2 this will be behind those who bought in the initial stage of sales. If a ballot is required, fans who also had a Season Ticket in 2019/20 or Membership in 2020/21 will receive additional priority.
Ricoh Return members who also buy a Season Ticket will receive free access to ifollow to watch any behind-closed-doors or restricted capacity home league games at the Ricoh Arena, if this is necessary.
Those Ricoh Return members who also purchase a Season Ticket will also receive first priority access to purchase away match tickets and cup match tickets when they are available to supporters again.
How To Buy:
Ricoh Return Memberships in Phase 2 are available to buy only at eticketing.co.uk/CCFC
Disabled Fans will also be able to purchase online or they can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries when arranging their Ricoh Return Membership.
Fans are not able to purchase at the Ticket Office due to the on-going lockdown – any queries can be sent to email@example.com
The Ticketmaster Call Centre is now closed.
Fans will be able to pay for their Ricoh Return Membership and Season Ticket through monthly instalments with V12 Finance.
Ricoh Return Memberships and Season Tickets are sold on a strictly non-refundable basis.
JSB Under 13s Season Tickets must be purchased alongside an adult. Both Under 16s and Under 13s will receive a JSB Membership as part of their Ricoh Return Membership. JSB Memberships will be available separately at a later date.
Students can access the concession rates too – as well as young adults (Under 21s), seniors (over 60s) and Armed Forces members while the Young Sky Blue rate extends discounted rates to under 18s.
Concessions and Disabled Supporters will not be required to provide new eligibility documents for this season due to the exceptional circumstances – this means they can purchase online or over the phone.
Due to the possible continued need for social distancing etc at the start of next season, the Club cannot guarantee that fans will sit in the seat that they purchase but we hope that this will be the case, and may be allocated alternative seating to comply with measures.
Season Ticket seats from the 2018/19 campaign will be held for all fans until it is confirmed by the Government that we are able to return to 100% capacity, without the need for social distancing etc, so that they do not lose their seat – however fans must buy before capacity is reached in the Membership to secure their place. We will give further updates when we are able to.
