Coventry City History

Coventry City began life as Singers FC in 1883. They were named for the Singer Cycle Company where the founders worked. They turned professional in 1892, and in 1898 the name changed to Coventry City when fans outside the company began turning up for games.

Highfield Road opened in 1899, and would be their home ground for the next 106 years.

After World War I, Coventry applied to join the Football League, and were placed in the Second Division.

However, on-field and financial struggles in the 1920s made things difficult for Coventry in this new era. The stadium was damaged during the blitz in World War II, and for a time all football was stopped in the city. It wasn’t until a few decades later that fortunes began to change for the club.

In 1961, Jimmy Hill came on as manager, and sky blue kits (and the club nickname) were adopted for the first time. Promotions in 1964 and 1967 lifted the club to the First Division for the very first time. In 1970 they finished in 6th place, which to this day is their highest league placement ever.

But the 1967-68 season marked the start of 34 consecutive years in the top flight, which included being one of the teams in the debut of the Premier League in 1992. During this era, they played in Europe for the first time, and won the FA Cup in 1987.

2005 saw the opening of the Coventry Arena stadium. However, a new venue has not been the boon it usually is for most clubs. Conflicts over the lease have forced the club to move out of the stadium on two separate occasions, in 2013-14 and from 2019-2021.
