NEWS: RIP Geoff Mann

29 January 2024

Coventry City Football Club were saddened to learn of the death of lifelong Sky Blues supporter Geoff Mann.

Geoff sadly passed away on Thursday at the age of 85.

Geoff was a huge Coventry City supporter - famously donning a Sky Blue striped suit as City won the FA Cup at Wembley in 1987, as well as on other special occasions, and becoming an Associate Director and Boardroom member for many years.

His professional and personal passions came together in the late 1990s when in his role as Senior Partner of architect RHWL he was appointed as the architect for the Arena 2000 project – what would become the Coventry Building Society Arena.  

Geoff was a senior partner of RHWL Architects from 1980 until 2013, having studied architecture at Liverpool University.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Geoff’s family and friends at this sad time.
