It has been a long time coming for Coventry City fans, but finally the club are coming back home to the city, and hundreds queued this morning to make sure they didn't miss the first game back at the Ricoh Arena against Gillingham next Friday.

Attendance numbers reached all-time lows for Coventry City last season after many fans refused to travel to Sixfields in Northampton to watch home fixtures. If this queue today was anything to go by, those numbers will now be back on the rise.

The club is getting ready for it's match against Swindon tomorrow, but Manager Steven Pressley is under no illusions that next week's game back home will be one to remember.

Reports suggest that by lunchtime, more than 5,000 tickets for the Gillingham game at the Ricoh on Friday 5th September had been sold. Many fans also reporting problems with buying online and by telephone due to demand.

The club say plenty of tickets are available for fans to buy and they apologise for the delays.
