Fans urged to make Ricoh return a night to remember

Coventry Editorial 28th Aug, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

THE OWNER of the Sky Blues is encouraging fans to make the return at the Ricoh against Gillingham a night to remember.

Ticket prices for the League One clash on September 5 have been discounted at £10 for adults, £5 for concessions (over 60s and 16-21-year-olds) and £1 for children aged up to 16.

Tickets for junior Sky Blues under the age of 12 will be free and go on sale this Friday.

And Sisu boss, Joy Seppala is hoping to attract a big crowd for the match which will be played in front of the Sky Sports TV cameras.

“There has been an overwhelming response to the team returning to the city,” said Ms Seppala.

“It would be great for Steven Pressley, the team, everyone at the club who has worked so hard over the past year and for the fans if there was a big crowd there for the first game back.

“To help create a special atmosphere on the night, we wanted to reduce prices to encourage more people to go along to the game and give the team the welcome they deserve.

“It’s been a difficult 12 months for everybody concerned and I sincerely hope that the night of September 5 is an evening for the fans to remember for all the right reasons.”

The club have confirmed this week that season ticket and matchday tickets will be pegged back at the 2012/13 level for the club’s return to the city.

Adult season tickets start at £252 in the family zone, concessions are £189, juniors are priced at £126, Junior Sky Blue members season tickets are £63 while JSBs under the age of 12 are free.

Those who had already bought season tickets for the current season will see those prices honoured.

While matchday tickets bought in advance will start at £18 for adults in the Family Zone, concessions will start at £13 and juniors are priced at £9, while JSBs over-12 start at £5.

These prices rise by £2 when tickets are bought on matchday, except for JSBs under the age of 12.

“We are taking nothing for granted and know that we have to rebuild our relationship with the fans,” said the club’s development director, Steve Waggott.

“Part of that is making our season tickets and tickets as affordable as possible so that as many people can get up to the Ricoh and back Steven Pressley and his players.”

Season ticket holders from the 2012/13 campaign will have until the end of September to renew their seat.
