Manchester United Ticket Arrangements

Coventry City today announced a repeat package for the home game with Manchester United designed to give Sky Blue supporters priority on tickets.

Tickets for the home game on Wednesday 25 August will be sold in a two-match package with tickets for the home game with Watford on Sunday 31 October.

The move follows an experiment with the United and Wimbledon games last season, which saw hardly any Red fans in the home areas, something that had been a problem in previous years.

Tickets go on priority sale from Monday 19 July to current season ticket holders, executive club members and members. A maximum of two tickets (for each game) per member may be bought. All tickets are subject to availability.

Any remaining tickets will be placed on general sale on 2 August on the two match package basis.

Ticket office manager Jamie Roberts said:

"The idea is to restrict home area tickets for home fans and it worked very well last year. We had a very good response from supporters for both games.

"In the past we had tried various measures to stop away fans buying up home tickets but it still happened.

"Other clubs have introduced similar packages for high profile games and they have proved successful in making sure that areas for home fans are exactly that."
