Why a Premier League Return for Coventry Matters

Coventry were relegated from England’s premier division after more than 30 years, yet one game away from making their comeback to England’s Premier League in 2016.

Mark Robins has orchestrated an incredible season under his guidance, defying all odds to advance to the play-off final and earn praise from around the footballing world for players such as goalkeeper Ben Wilson and striker Viktor Gyokeres who have stood out amongst their peers this term.

1. They’re back home

Coventry City fans rejoiced as Coventry City scored late against Middlesbrough at Wembley for a play-off semi-final play-off goal and celebrated as though this were their return to Premier League play after more than 30 years – something which deserves celebration by everyone at Coventry.

After 34 consecutive years in England’s top division, the Sky Blues were relegated in 2001 and have since been moving throughout the football league.

Doug King’s full takeover has failed to bring consistent success for Coventry City Football Club since their Championship debut. But Coventry have still played attractive football during their time there and rarely finished outside of the top six positions.

Last season, the Ricoh Arena served as their home ground, but due to leasing issues they were forced to play at Sixfields in Northampton – 33 miles away – for this season’s campaign. Since then however, all issues related to renting have been addressed and resolved.

2. They’re back in the EFL

Coventry City have endured a turbulent decade that saw them enter administration and play in League Two before emerging with only 90 minutes remaining until reaching England’s richest game – an incredible turnaround that would mark Coventry City fans who hadn’t witnessed them in the Premier League since 2001!

Mark Robins has completely transformed a Coventry side that was unrecognisable when he arrived as manager in 2015. Now only three games away from Premier League return, his fans could experience their first Premier League action for decades!

Although it will take time for Coventry Building Society Arena to fully settle back in, their agreement with their stadium landlord should help the club remain in the EFL next season. Jordan believes it unlikely they could be evicted as they require an ongoing lease agreement otherwise they wouldn’t be able to play any longer.

3. They’re back in the Championship

Coventry City FC have shown tremendous momentum since finishing in any division for 48 years and have shown they are willing to compete with clubs who benefit from parachute payments. Their form may have suffered over Christmas but the Sky Blues remain competitive, Viktor Gyokeres scoring 21 league goals whilst Gustavo Hamer adding classy and dynamic midfield play.

Mark Robins took over Coventry City managership in March 2017 as many had written them off, breathing new life into an otherwise doomed club. Since his appointment, Robins’ team have come incredibly close to football’s promised land; victory against Luton Town in the Championship play-off final would take Coventry back into England’s premier division for the first time since 2001; marking a remarkable comeback and rewarding Robins for turning around what many thought was an impossible cause.

4. They’re back in the Premier League

Since their last appearance in the Premier League 11 years ago, Coventry City have come a long way since being relegated from top flight at the end of 2000-01 season.

Before reaching the play-offs this season, they had finished 16th and 12th in their two previous Championship seasons before manager Mark Robins breathed new life and belief into an otherwise neglected club when he took charge.

Coventry City have been an incredible joy to watch this season and their leading goalscorer Chuba Akpom has been phenomenal. Owned by local businessman Doug King who promises transparency and clarity at the club. Additionally, King is ready to invest up to PS10m if Coventry win promotion to Premier League.
