NEWS: Warning issued about persistent standing on matchdays

13 February 2023

Coventry City is reminding supporters that the Coventry Building Society Arena is an all-seater stadium.

There have been a number of matches this season where there has been persistent standing in areas of the stadium.

Following communication from authorities regarding this, Coventry City and the Arena have been asked to remind Sky Blues supporters that persistent standing is not allowed at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Persistently standing for the whole match or for long periods is against ground regulations and may affect the enjoyment of the game for other supporters, whose view may be affected, as well as your own safety and the safety of others. 

If this situation does continue, we have been warned that there may be action taken against the Football Club and the Arena. This has the potential to include fines, capacity restrictions or the closure of certain areas. Therefore, we have issued this reminder today. 

Alongside today’s reminder, there will be further reminders on matchdays on the scoreboard, tannoy and in the matchday programme.

We thank supporters for their co-operation and understanding.
