Fans at the moment are only able to buy vouchers which are to be exchanged at the services for match tickets. Once you have your ticket you are free to move onto the ground where all facilities including the bars will be open. Tickets will be available from 11:15am, the game kicks off at 1:30pm.

Car drivers have the option to use a park and ride scheme from the services at a cost of £3.00. Fans on coaches will be dropped off outside the ground after the ticket exchange at the services.

The statement from the club regarding the arrangements can be found here.

The Valley Rams are not running coaches to this game. It was decided that the Rams members would run cars to the match as a protest, thus making it more difficult for the organisers.

'We are trying to make a statement that we will not put up with being told what to do,' said Rams secretary Paul Corkery. 'Now the police will have to find places for us to park and have to give tickets out to every individual, instead of one bus rep. There is no need for it.'

Cardiff City Supporters Club will be running coaches.

'Even though I support the Rams in their stance and I fear that we may be messed about in Coventry,' said travel officer Vince Alm. 'We decided we have to take coaches because we cater for the infirm and children who would not be able to see the game if we didn't.'
