Coventry City fans back national protest

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Coventry City fans are the latest to back the Fans United demonstrations taking part in Blackpool next month.

The Sky Blue Trust, who represent fans of the recently relegated midlands club, are encouraging their members and other Coventry City supporters to join the major fans’ gathering at the seaside town on Saturday 6th May.

More than 4,000 people are expected to take part in the day of action to protest against the game’s most unpopular owners.

The Trust said: “We hope to see plenty of Sky Blues fans there on the day as we make our voices heard about our club’s particularly desperate plight.

“We are urging fans to bring their banners and placards and to join with like-minded fans from other club’s in getting our voices heard.”

Organised by the Football Supporters’ Federation and the Blackpool Supporters’ Trust, the day of action consists of three parts: a march along Blackpool promenade, a match between an AFC Blackpool side and a Crisis Clubs XI with a social event with live music at The Shovels rounding off the day.
