Fans return to Coventry City home games this Sunday, when the Sky Blues return to the Coventry Building Society Arena when we face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
This is our first game following the pandemic and it’s therefore important that we make clear the protocols that will be in place to ensure the safety of each fan and other supporters around them at this game and future home games until further notice.
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.
If a fan receives a positive test ahead of a home game, which means they are not allowed to attend, Coventry City would arrange for the value of purchased match ticket to be transferred to another fixture. This could be done by contacting the Ticket Office via firstname.lastname@example.org, including proof of the positive test. *
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 well as lounges, as these are busy areas.
This is encouraged for supporters themselves and also to help your fellow supporters. While you as a fan may not wish to wear one, please be mindful of other supporters who may be more vulnerable and have different personal circumstances.
With that in mind, we also we encourage all fans to respect the choice of other supporters in this regard.
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.
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:
“We are encouraging fans to wear masks when at the stadium, as an added protection for everyone in attendance – both for themselves and other supporters.
“It is not compulsory but it is an added protection, as is fans testing themselves before each game.
“By us all doing this together, we hope that we can help to stop the spread of Coronavirus and make sure the return of fans to the Arena is a safe one.”
The Club also last week provided updated information on interaction with players on matchdays - this can be seen here
* This does not supersede Coventry City’s general refund policy and only applies in these circumstances.
