Carabao Cup

EFL statement: Coventry City

8 August 2022

Due to ongoing issues relating to the playing surface at the Coventry Building Society Arena, in line with competition rules, the EFL has granted permission for Coventry City's upcoming Carabao Cup Round One tie against Bristol City to be played at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium.

After discussions between Clubs and relevant parties, the alternative venue was agreed in order to allow the fixture to be fulfilled, with the tie taking place as scheduled on Wednesday 10 August at 7.45pm. Our thanks go to Burton Albion for making its stadium available at short notice. 

The EFL continues discussions with Coventry City regarding the fulfilment of its upcoming League fixtures and has requested observations from the Club regarding the circumstances that led to the postponement of Sunday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Rotherham United.
