About Us

The Association was formed in December 2006 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers. You can find the contact details of the current members of the non ex-players amongst the ten strong committee on our contacts page and all committee members are pictured below (look out for them on matchdays – all will be wearing the membership badge)!  As at March 2022 there are 336 Full Members (including Honorary Members), all of them former ex players or management of Coventry City FC, and 35 current paid up Associate Members, 58 Honorary Associate Members plus our (around) 12 Corporate Members.  All are listed on our Members page. The Association’s main objective is to provide a forum for former players of the club to meet and communicate whilst at the same time enable the club and the supporters to recognise its former heroes.

To achieve this objective the association intends to facilitate:

  • Former players of the club to be welcomed free at home games at the Ricoh Arena.
  • Former players to meet their former colleagues at social and sporting events.
  • The club’s supporters to meet the club’s former players.

Membership will be free to all former Coventry City first team players and managers.

Every full member will be allowed to attend home league games free of charge with a friend and use a hospitality lounge before and after a match.

The association organises tribute dinners, golf days and events to bring together the members. Other events such as informal fans forums and reunions are organised to enable the club’s supporters to meet and honour the members. Many of these events are run in conjunction with the football club.

The Association operates financially independent of the football club and relies upon sponsors and fund raising to run its events. The football club however fully support the association and want to help greater recognition of the club’s history and heritage. At Legends Day on 27th March 2010 Joe Elliott of CCFC was presented with a 1960s shirt by his hero and Association Member George Hudson to mark his acceptance of our offer to become the Association’s Honorary Life President. At Legends Day 2012 Terry Yorath was introduced to the Ricoh crowd as our surprise 200th member. We are now up to the 270 mark. A full list can be found by selecting the ‘Current membership’ tab in the ‘About Us’ drop down menu above.
