NEWS: Sky Blues confirm pitch passed safe and playable ahead of next week's game

25 August 2022

Coventry City can confirm that a further inspection of the Coventry Building Society Arena pitch took place on Wednesday by the independent agronomist, and that following the extensive work that has taken place, at the time of the visit the pitch was in a safe and playable condition with no safety concerns about next Wednesday’s game against Preston North End being played.

Pitch improvement work began last week and was completed this morning.

New synthetic fibres have been stitched into the ground throughout the pitch. These new fibres will give increased stability to the existing structure and then allow for better growth now and in the future.

Also, areas which have been more widely damaged have been subject to extensive and increased maintenance work so they can be fully integrated with the existing pitch.

Dave Boddy, Coventry City Chief Executive, said:

“This is very pleasing news and we can’t wait until next Wednesday’s game.

“The confirmation that the pitch work has been successful in making the required improvements is what Sky Blues fans have been waiting to hear.

“The Preston match will be just £20 for Adults and with the school holidays also still on in Coventry and good weather expected, it’s a great opportunity for fans to come along and support Mark Robins and the team in our first home game of the campaign.”
