Ahead of Tuesday’s game against Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship, the Sky Blues have produced a matchday guide for fans attending the game.
The Sky Bet Championship game is a 7:45pm kick-off at the Coventry Building Society Arena, with Adult tickets just £20 for the Category C fixture.
A crowd of around 16,500 is expected. We appreciate that fans will be coming after work/school etc, but we would urge fans to arrive early if possible.
We expect cash turnstiles to be busy and we therefore also urge fans to arrive early when buying on the gate.
COVID Advice and Protocols
Coventry City issued updated COVID Advice and Protocols for fans at the start of the season – this continues to apply for all our home games.
- Before you come to the game, we encourage fans to take a lateral flow test. This is not compulsory but would hopefully reduce the risk of transmission in the stadium.
- All fans are encouraged to wear face masks when at games - particularly when entering the stadium and walking around the concourse, as these are busy areas.
- We also encourage fans to continue social distancing wherever possible.
- There are increased hygiene measures, and fans are encouraged to wash their hands.
- In accordance with the current Government and EFL regulations, there is currently no requirement to provide proof of double vaccination to enter the stadium.
Currently, players are not appearing in the Family Zone or Lounges as part of our COVID protocols. We politely request that fans do not ask players/staff for selfies either inside or outside the stadium.
Fans are allowed to bring in their own small hand sanitiser with them to the game.
Buying tickets on matchday
Saturday’s game is a Category C fixture – which means Adult tickets are only £20, with Concessions £15, Under 18s £10, JSB U16s £5 and JSB U13s £0.
Tickets will be available to buy from the Ticket Office at the Coventry Building Society Arena, which opens at 9:30am on Tuesday night. This is cashless.

Away Fan Information
Away fans are located in the South Stand. Tickets are available to purchase at Cash Turnstiles from 6:30pm. Food and Drink kiosks in the South Stand are cashless.
Following recent events, we felt it was important to highlight to fans the locations of defibrillators within the Stadium Bowl area for fans. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.
These are clearly only for use in an emergency, but can prove vital for fans who suffer a cardiac arrest.
