NEWS: Coventry City supporting 'EFL Together' month this Saturday versus Hull City

7 March 2023

Coventry City will be dedicating its home game against Hull City to showing its determination to make football and the Coventry Building Society Arena a place for all.

The matchday will see the Club showing support for equality, diversity and inclusion at the Sky Blues, as part of the EFL’s ‘Together’ month.

This will include the Club’s annual Level Playing Field matchday, the project which campaigns for access and improvements for disabled supporters. This season has seen the Club host its first Disabled Supporters Forum, while other improvements to the ticket buying process for disabled fans have also been seen in recent years.

The Sky Blues will also be promoting the work of Kick It Out, the charity which campaigns against racism in football and in society and work with the game to report any incidents on matchdays.

City will also be highlighting its support of Football v Homophobia and its continued support for the Rainbow Laces campaign, who’s matchday took place earlier this season.

The Sky Blues will also be highlight the extensive work it does across the Club and with Sky Blues in the Community and Coventry City Women and Girls in support of females playing, supporting and having roles in football, along with supporting Her Game Too, for our closest fixture to International Women’s Day on 8th March.

The Club’s work in these areas will be highlighted in the days leading up to the game on our website and social media, as well as on the day including on the scoreboard and in the matchday programme.

Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:

“We are delighted to be supporting the EFL Together month by showcasing our work across the areas of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

“We back a number of initiatives in these areas, as well as taking action on a day-to-day basis across the Football Club and Sky Blues in the Community.

“Both here and across society, there have been improvements over the years but there is still work to be done.

“By showcasing our work in these areas on this matchday, we hope that this will continue to make Sky Blues matchdays and us as a Football Club a more inclusive environment for everyone.”

Sport and physical activity can bring so many benefits to our lives – not just in terms of wellbeing but also in the ways they bring people together, whether that is taking part or watching.

People from all walks of life can gain a sense of belonging and community through the shared passion that they have for football and for the Sky Blues.

Coventry City is committed to making sure that our matchdays continue to be a positive and respectful environment for all supporters – who can enjoy their day in safety, free of discrimination or any incidents that may deter from that experience. 

Coventry City believes that football is for all, and everyone should be welcome at our games, and we shall be emphasising this when we face Hull City.
