Coventry City Football Club are delighted to confirm that they have agreed terms on a new four-year contract with manager Mark Robins!

The agreement, which will be signed this week, will keep Robins at the Club until 2027 and what will be a landmark decade at the helm of the Sky Blues.

Since taking over for his second spell in March 2017, Robins has guided the Sky Blues to the Checkatrade Trophy in 2017, League Two Play-Off victory in 2018 and the 2019/20 League One title in 2019/20, while City face Middlesbrough in the Championship Play-Off Semi-Final this evening, having established themselves in the Championship since 2020 with a brand of exciting, attacking football.

Doug King, Executive Chairman and Owner, said:

“The footballing success over the last six years is well documented and we are looking forward to the second leg play-off tonight as we seek more success.  

“More importantly though since taking control of the club in January, and as an outsider, I have been extremely impressed with the leadership skills and authority with which Mark operates.

“He also remains hugely ambitious both personally and for the continued resurgence of Coventry City Football Club which is critical, and I believe that the club is now in a position to support those ambitions and take our Club back to the top tier of English football.

“I am thrilled he has committed to us as we embark on this new era together.”

Manager Mark Robins said:

“I am delighted to agree terms of a new contract with Coventry City.

“While our focus is on tonight’s game, the journey that we have been on together as a Club has been amazing so far. I look forward to continuing that work in the next four years and the improvement on and off the pitch of this great Football Club.

"This was an easy decision to make and I thank the Club for their continued support."
