NEWS: Matchday Guide versus Cardiff City

15 September 2021

Ahead of Wednesday’s game against Cardiff 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

A crowd of over 15,000 is expected. We expect cash turnstiles to be busy, especially as it is an evening game, and we therefore advise 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 still applies to all our home games.

To summarise:

  • 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. This is particularly important when fans are 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 no requirement to provide proof of double vaccination to enter the stadium.

The Club has also provided information regarding interaction between supporters and players on matchdays – this can be seen here. 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.
