Coventry City Legends Day re-scheduled for May

Editorial Correspondent 5th Mar, 2018 Updated: 5th Mar, 2018

COVENTRY City’s former players’ association has rescheduled Legends Day for May after the snow scuppered the event in honour of Cyrille Regis.

It follows the bitter disappointment of Saturday’s postponement when 50-plus former Sky Blue players were expected from far and wide at the Ricoh Arena.

With huge efforts by volunteers, it had been feared it would be too difficult to reschedule.

But the Coventry City Former Players’ Association has today announced on its website a new date of May 5, for the home match with Morecambe.

It reads:

“Legends Day 2018 will now go ahead for the Sky Blues final home fixture of the season against Morecambe on Saturday 5th May.

“CCFPA and CCFC were bitterly disappointed that it couldn’t go ahead but are pleased to confirm a new date so quickly.

“The Association will be doing its level best to ensure that as many as possible of the club’s ‘Stars Of The Past’ will be able to make it in May. Sadly some will not be able to return but others who the weather prevented from travelling or who had clashes preventing their attendance last Saturday may now be free to come. We will keep you posted!

“The club, on it website has said that it hopes that all guests who were due to attend Legends Day will be able to make the re-arranged date. If however guests are unable to attend the Morecambe fixture they offer suitable alternatives below that are available to all who booked for the Lincoln fixture:

Booking moved to Legends Day for the Morecambe fixture

Booking moved to alternative home league fixture for the 2017/18 season

Full refund

“This will also be the arrangement for all executive box and premium lounge tickets.”

The club also says guests “will receive a formal email this week from the hospitality department on how to go about re-booking or obtaining a refund. We ask that you reply to the email when you receive it in order for an efficient process to be administered”.

“We are all really pleased that Legends Day can be accommodated within the 2017-18 season and, who knows, we may not only be celebrating Legends Day in May but also, hopefully a Sky Blues potential promotion! Look out for more news on CCFPA’s own arrangements in coming days!”
