Ahead of Coventry City’s game against Birmingham City, local authorities and the two clubs are strongly advising supporters not to travel by train post-match from Coventry Arena station.
The match takes place at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Tuesday 23rd November 2021, with kick-off at 7:45pm.
West Midlands Railways, British Transport Police, West Midlands Police, the Sky Blues, Birmingham City and the Coventry Building Society Arena are all uniting to advise fans to use alternative transport.
There is a very limited service running after the game from the Coventry Arena station, restricted to only one scheduled train back to Coventry Station due to COVID-19 measures.
While this will be supplemented by rail replacement buses, we strongly urge fans to make alternative plans and not to travel by train when leaving the Arena.
A big crowd is expected at the Sky Bet Championship game, with over 18,000 tickets sold already, as the two sides meet again back at the Coventry Building Society Arena following the Sky Blues’ groundshare at St Andrew’s.

- Train services between Birmingham and Coventry are expected to be very busy
- You are strongly advised not to travel by train from Coventry Arena post-match
