Sky Blues fans urged to snap up half-season tickets

TONY Mowbray is hoping his attractive brand of attacking football will encourage more people to watch his side at the Ricoh Arena after the club anounced early-bird half-season ticket prices.

The Sky Blues currently boast the best home form in English football having won six of their last eight matches at the Ricoh.

Early bird half-season tickets will be available until midnight on November 20, ahead of the Gillingham match, and are priced at £163 for adults and £125 for concessions for the final 15 games of the season.

“The support we’ve received at the Ricoh Arena so far this season has been a real cataylst behind our home form,” said Mowbray.

“The atmosphere has really improved and I’m delighted to see more City fans coming to the Ricoh Arena to support their team.

“I’ve spoken about the importance of revenues off the pitch as it directly contributes to our playing budget and if both of them can increase, then I’m sure the quality of the product will follow.

“I’d like to thank every supporter who has got behind us so far this season and I really hope your support continues throughout the rest of the campaign.”

The Sky Blues have also pulled off a ‘Christmas Cracker’ with reduced ticket prices for the Oldham Athletic game.

The club have slashed prices for the game against the Latics on Saturday, December 19 with adults priced at just £10, concessions priced at £5 and ‘Kids for a Quid’, with juniors priced at £1.

With the Sky Blues flying high in League One, City have witnessed over a 30 per cent increase on attendances this season.

With a 25 per cent reduction in season ticket prices and the club’s backing of the Football Supporters Federation’s Twenty’s Plenty campaign, the club have made efforts to make football more affordable for our supporters.

Mowbray added: “The attendances at the Ricoh Arena this season have been magnificent and obviously, it has had a positive impact on the team.

“The club has made several efforts this season to engage with our supporters and offering reduced prices in what is usually a difficult time for families, is another great gesture.

“We’re hopeful the reduction in prices will lead to a bumper gate to give the squad maximum support during the crucial Christmas period.”

Fans will be able to book their tickets for the game and buy half-season tickets by visiting, the Butts Park Arena Ticket Office (Mon-Fri: 10am-5:30pm. Exc Weds: 10am-3:30pm), the Arena Park Club Shop and on the phone, 024 7699 1987 (Monday – Friday, 10am to 5:30pm).
