'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The price of watching the Sky Blues

Is watching Coventry City good value for money?

The BBC have released the findings of their 'Price of Football' survey for 2012 in which they look at the cost of tickets, programmes, a cup of tea and a pie in a bid to find the best value day out for football fans.

The League One section of the story on the BBC website contains the following piece about the Sky Blues: 'Coventry, relegated from the Championship last season, have recognised the need to lower their prices to encourage fans to continue coming through the turnstiles, despite playing in a lower division.

'Last year, the Sky Blues' cheapest and most expensive tickets were 22 and 29 respectively, but they have reduced both prices by 4, now charging 18 pounds for the cheapest ticket and 25 for the most expensive.'

Full details of the survey are on the BBC Sport website and can be found by clicking here.

I think the club's season tickets were well priced and that has to be the way forward, getting the numbers of ST holders up. Walk up prices are competitive compared to other clubs but people are not going to pay 18 a game unless it is a big cup game or we are in and around the play-offs at the end of the season.

A lot of people are out of the habit of going to games and it's easy to find other ways of spending that money. The long-haul solution has to be getting season ticket numbers up year-on-year.
