Coventry City Club Profile

After a longer unbroken run in the top flight than Spurs or both Manchester sides, recent years were less fun for Coventry City; relegation to League Two in 2017 putting them back in the fourth tier for the first time since 1959. Off-field problems impacting on-field fortunes didn’t help, to be fair; having to set up home at Northampton Town one of the outcomes.

But good times were quick to return; instantly returning to League One at the first attempt. Then, in 2020, the League One championship restored them to the second tier. Off-field, however, it hasn’t all been plain sailing. The Sky Blues left their Ricoh Arena home for the second time in seven years to play their ‘home’ games at Birmingham City. At first, it was for the 2019-20 season. But it was extended into a second season.

After our first-ever meeting ended in away-day success, we lost three in three (and four out of five); our record against the Sky Blues in need of some serious TLC.

Coventry City Travel Information – Distance: 87 miles

By Road

Go north on the M1 and take the M6 into the Midlands. Don’t take the M6 Toll, though. You need to take the ‘old’ M6 until Spaghetti Junction; leaving here for the A38(M) towards the city centre. At the end of this motorway, take the A4540 for the NIA and other destinations.

At the roundabout, use the first exit for the A5127. Once you cover another 1.5 miles, take the first exit at a large roundabout (Bordesley Circus). This brings you onto the B4128.

Parking

For Brum, there are four car parks in and around St Andrews. But it doesn’t look like these are all available to the Sky Blues. And we don’t know if away fans can use them either.

The Kop Stand car park (B9 4RL) is behind a stand that ‘home’ fans use. As one road you need to access it is shut at 2.15pm on a Saturday matchday, getting to the car park later means you simply won’t get in.

For alternative options, see the Sky Blues website.


By Rail

Station: BORDESLEY
Services to: BIRMINGHAM MOOR STREET (for BIRMINGHAM NEW STREET)

Bordesley is the nearest station at around half-a-mile from St Andrews. While services do operate to this station when the Blues are at home, we’re not sure if that applies to the Sky Blues too. Moor Street is 1.4 miles away if not, while New Street is just shy of two miles.

If you do come into Bordesley, head north on Bedford Road. Go right into Coventry Road at the end of the road and then over the roundabout ahead. Next, it’s straight up Cattell Road for the ground.
