Players will hold a minute's silence on Saturday Credit: Chelsea F.C.

The passing of our much-loved Life President Lord Attenborough has greatly affected everyone, and Chelsea Football Club fully appreciates our supporters’ emotions at this time and your wish to pay tribute to the important part he played in our history.

At our next home game, against Swansea City on Saturday 13th September, there will be a minute’s appreciation prior to kick-off in honour of a great Chelsea fan who also served as a club director for 13 years. There will be tributes on the big screens and in the matchday programme.

A lasting memorial to Lord Attenborough’s support of Chelsea is also appropriate. In consultation with Lord Attenborough's family, the club will carefully consider the possibilities and suggestions for this to ensure the most suitable option is taken.

Coventry City fans will be hoping to secure a seat at the Ricoh Arena for the club's first home game of the season, back in Coventry. Tickets go on sale this morning (9:30am) for the home fixture against Gillingham next Friday.

It comes after a deal was reached to allow the club to return to the Ricoh Arena. The Sky Blues have played all their home fixtures for more than a year at Sixfields in Northampton after a row over rent at the Ricoh.

The club said it was expecting to see a huge demand for tickets for the return fixture.

"We really want to show the footballing world that Coventry City Football Club is back in the city and what this means to the people of Coventry. We need the fans more than ever now to get behind Steven Pressley and his team for our first game back and throughout the season and that is why we have set prices so low.

– Steve Waggott, Development Director, CCFC

Tickets for the Gillingham game for adults will be £10.
