Jimmy Hill Statue Erected Outside Coventry City Ground: Photo and Video

A seven foot bronze statue of Jimmy Hill was unveiled outside Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena Thursday.

Jimmy Hill, who is best remembered for hosting Match Of the Day, has a long list of other achievements such as:

  • He helped get rid of the player’s maximum wage,
  • He commissioned the first all-seater stadium soccer stadium in England when at Coventry,
  • He’s credited with the three-points for a win system,
  • And he was an accomplished footballer with Fulham from 1952-61.

So it’s a fitting tribute that Coventry decided to erect the statue of him outside their ground. Hill, 83, looks quite well and fit as you can see in the video below.
