Fans urged to cash in early
COVENTRY supporters are being asked to arrive in plenty of time tomorrow when the Ricoh Arena becomes the first cashless stadium in the country.
New cards will enable season-ticket holders to buy refreshments and there will also be cards for fans attending on a match-by-match basis.
Daniel Gidney, chief executive of the Ricoh Arena, explained: "We are attempting to halve the time each transaction takes which will make a massive difference, but any wholesale change takes time to bed down and we would ask supporters to get there early and bear with the staff."
Fans can load a minimum of ÃÂ£5 on to their cards from staff dressed in lime green in the concourses ahead of the games, at the ticket office on non-matchdays and matchdays and from the website.
