Coventry City will welcome Warwickshire’s Cricket County Championship winners to Tuesday night’s game against Birmingham City at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
A number of players and coaching staff from The Bears will be guests of the Sky Blues for the Sky Bet Championship game on Tuesday 23rd November, which kicks off at 7:45pm.
They will be parading the County Championship Trophy around the pitch at half-time, giving fans of Coventry City and Birmingham City the chance to celebrate and recognise the achievement of our local Cricket team and their players.
Warwickshire won their first County Championship since 2012 as they beat Somerset by 118 runs at Edgbaston at the end of September. They also went on to beat Lancashire in the Bob Willis Trophy at Lords.
Sam Hain top scored with 826 runs for the County in the Championship, while the top wicket taker was Liam Norwell, who took 49 wickets.
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:
“We are delighted to welcome the players and coaching staff from Warwickshire to our game on Tuesday night, and would like to congratulate them on their fantastic achievement.
“Both Sky Blues fans and Birmingham City fans can be very proud of the achievements of our local Cricket side, and we hope that The Bears will get a great reception to recognise their brilliant achievement.”
