NEWS: Matchday information for fans ahead of Sunday's game against Nottingham Forest

6 August 2021

Ahead of Sunday’s first league game back in Coventry against Nottingham Forest, the Sky Blues have produced a matchday guide for fans attending the game.

The Sky Bet Championship game is a 4:30pm kick-off at the Coventry Building Society Arena, however we are encouraging all fans to arrive early, with a crowd expected of over 20,000.

COVID Advice and Protocols

Coventry City issued updated COVID Advice and Protocols for fans last week – this applies to all our home games.

To summarise:

  • Before you come to the game, we are encouraging fans to take a lateral flow test. This is not compulsory but would hopefully reduce the risk of transmission in the stadium.
  • While not mandatory, all fans will be encouraged to wear face masks when at games. This is particularly important when fans are entering the stadium and walking around the concourse, as these are busy areas.
  • We also encourage fans to continue social distancing wherever possible.
  • There will also continue to be increased hygiene measures, and fans will be encouraged to wash their hands.
  • In accordance with the current Government and EFL regulations, there is no requirement to provide proof of double vaccination to enter the stadium.
