18 August 2021

Coventry City can confirm that Lancashire Police are investigating an alleged racist hate crime during last night's match between Blackpool FC and Coventry City FC.

It was reported a racist comment was made by a fan towards a Coventry City player taking a throw-in close to the dugout during the second half.

An investigation is underway and enquiries ongoing, and we will not make any further comment regarding this incident at this time.

Coventry City strongly condemns all forms of racism and discrimination, and we as a Club will continue to do everything we can to stamp racism and discrimination out of the game and society.
