Coventry City’s home fixtures are to resume at the Coventry Building Society (CBS) Arena after an assessment from independent sports turf experts determined the pitch was safe and playable.
As a result, the EFL has now given approval for Coventry City’s fixture against Preston North End to take place as scheduled on Wednesday 31 August.
Today’s decision follows pitch improvement work taking place at the CBS Arena over the last week to give increased stability to existing pitch infrastructure, which should provide for better growth conditions in the future.
The independent assessment has determined that the pitch has improved considerably thanks to these works and there were no concerns regarding player safety at the time of inspection.
The EFL continues to review the circumstances around the postponements of the Rotherham United, Huddersfield Town and Wigan Athletic fixtures and will determine an appropriate course of action, in accordance with EFL Regulations, in due course.
