FOOTBALL - Coventry City commentators sought to help blind and visually impaired fans

COVENTRY City are looking for volunteers to join the club’s new speciality in-stadium access commentary service, provided by Alan March Sport Ltd, at the club’s home games next season.

The Sky Blues and Alan March Sport (AMS) are looking for applicants who can commit to a high percentage of Coventry City home fixtures, including pre-season and cup games.

Applicants will need to occasionally carry a small amount of equipment (less than 10kg) and commute to the CBS Arena within 80 minutes of their permanent residence.

Applicants must also attend an all-day training session from 9.15am to 5.30pm at the CBS Arena on Sunday, July 21.

All volunteers must be over the age of 16 on the date of the training day.

Anyone interested should email: [email protected] with the subject line Coventry City Commentary Application and the following information: full name, age, email address, phone number and 60 to 100 words on why you think you would be a great commentator covering Coventry City matches.

The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Sunday, July 14. The club reserve the right to close applications early should they be oversubscribed.

AMS currently run 15 commentary teams around the country including Premier League clubs such as Newcastle United, Nottingham Forest, Wolves and Fulham.
