A GIANT mural has been unveiled outside Wembley Stadium for excited Coventry City fans to take photos in front of ahead of todays playoff final.

But it will only be finished if the Sky Blues secure a return to the Premier League.

Two murals, one for each club, have been stationed pre-match within the fan zones ahead of the championship playoff final between Coventry and Luton Town.

Championship sponsors Sky Bet commissioned artist John Culshaw – famed for a range of sporting murals, including Roberto Firmino’s farewell design – to create 3x2m paintings for each finalist.

And a third of the design will be left ‘unfinished’ until after the final whistle, after which Culshaw will have a matter of minutes to complete the mural for the winning team.

It will then be taken outside the stadium to greet fans of the Premier League-bound club as they make their way home.

Culshaw said: “It has been an honour to create these two murals for two fantastic football clubs, and finding a way to capture their incredible seasons in just a 3x2m space has been a real challenge.

“For one of these two teams, I’m really looking forward to capturing their winning moment from the final, and I can’t wait to witness the faces of the winning fans as they leave the stadium to see the final version.”

The murals have been commissioned by Skybet.
