Sky Blues in the Community
Based at the Ricoh Arena, Sky Blues in the Community is a registered charity which delivers community initiatives on behalf of Coventry City Football Club to over 12,000 people every year across Coventry and Warwickshire.
Football plays a big part in so many people's lives; our aim is to utilise Coventry City FC to engage people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Our mission is simply 'To use Coventry City Football Club to enhance the lives of people within our community'
Our focus is to deliver attractive, innovative and quality services for the benefit of our community. We also provide a safe and friendly environment where people are actively encouraged to flourish.
Our programmes and activities run across four themes; sports participation, health, education and inclusion. Many people believe that football in the community activity purely relates to offering football activities for children, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Sky Blues in the Community do this, plus much, much more, with a variety of projects and activities ranging for males and females aged 5-95.
We work with a number of local, regional and national organisations from the voluntary and statutory sector to deliver against our strategic themes. Working in partnership with other organisations is essential to everything we do helping us to achieve our organisational objectives.
