Coventry City Club Profile
Once enjoying a longer unbroken run in the top flight than Spurs or either Manchester side, recent times have been a bit lean for Coventry City; relegation to League Two in 2017 putting them back in the fourth tier for the first time since 1959. Off-field issues impacting on-field fortunes didn’t help, to be fair.

Facilities for Disabled Fans:
Coventry City requires a letter no more than a year old that indicates receipt of middle or higher rate of the Disability Living Allowance for ticket purposes. Although prices are the same as a standard ticket, wheelchair users will benefit from a concessionary rate due to a limited location of bays and assistants are admitted free of charge.
Away fans can take advantage of 19 wheelchair bays, all with an adjacent seat for assistants. If you have an ambulant disability, you are entitled to sit in any available seat.
The Ricoh Arena is located on the outskirts of Coventry and, as a newer development, doesn't exactly lend itself to nearby watering holes.
But that needn't deter you, for one corner of the ground features the Grosvenor Casino and this lets in fans of all persuasions, should you be so inclined. Otherwise, you could toddle off for 10 minutes into Longford and chance your arm.
Travel Information – Distance: 87 miles
It might not be the shortest trip on the list, but it's one of the more straightforward so there is no need to panic too much about the prospect of being sent to Coventry.
You'll be wanting to head north on the M1 to begin with, however you choose to cross country to reach it. And after that, you'll be wanting the M6. All very simple so far...
Once you've joined the M6, you'll be wanting Junction 3 for the A444. Take the second exit at the roundabout and head towards Coventry. You'll find the ground will be at the next roundabout.
If getting there is straightforward, parking is less so. The club's official car park isn't particularly recommended as they might not be able to let you in and, if they can, it'll be a cool tenner. Your other options are the other private car parks in the surrounding areas.

Coventry's station is around three miles from the ground, so walking probably isn't the most sensible option - it's a bus or taxi for you.
