Sky Blues apologise to fans over queues

Coventry Editorial 15th Sep, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE CHIEF executive of the Sky Blues has sent an apology to fans after large queues caused delays getting into the stadium for the second match running.

People collecting tickets and season tickets ahead of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Yeovil were forced to wait for long periods with many missing the start of the game.

The Sky Blues do no play at home again until they host Preston on September 27 and Steve Waggott has said his staff will fix any problems over the next fortnight.

“Steven Pressley, the staff and the team are all extremely grateful for the warm welcome they have received since we returned to the Ricoh Arena,” said Waggott.

“I understand that there were long queues again on Saturday for those supporters who were collecting their tickets and season tickets for the match.

“I can only unreservedly apologise for that but you can rest assured that, over the next fortnight, we will be working hard behind the scenes to get all of the systems in place to address this.

“I was so keen to get us back playing in Coventry as soon as possible that there have been issues and it is up to us to work through and resolve those as quickly as we possibly can to ensure that your experience of the club is seamless and smooth – from buying tickets to attending the game.

“It’s vital we get those things right off the pitch in order to make sure as many of our supporters can enjoy the action on it.”
