Sky Blues Launch New Text Service

MPP Global Posted by MPP Global on Monday, 08 July 2002

Coventry City Football Club has launched a fantastic new mobile phone text service that will enable all fans to get the latest official news on the football club before it has been released anywhere else.

The service will send all the hottest information on transfers, injuries, team and ticket news and all the latest scores both home and away directly to your mobile, the moment it happens.

Commercial Director, Ric Allison is delighted to be offering the package and sees it as the start of a new era for the club: “This is a fantastic development both for the club and the fans. We fully realise the importance of keeping our fans bang up to date on the latest developments at the club in this day and age.

“We are now beginning to fully exploit the potential of new technologies that will give every supporter the chance to feel involved with the club. If you feel under-informed on the goings on here this is for you. Fans will now know things pretty much as soon as we do.”

The service could not be easier to subscribe to. To sign up for Sky Blue Text you simply send the text message CCFC ON to the mobile number 82540, ensuring a space is left between the words CCFC and ON. This will immediately register you to all the latest news.

If you wish to be more selective in the information you receive you can also register to any of these groups by simply entering CCFC ON followed by the appropriate number:

1) Daily News- all the stories from the club as they break
2) Home Match News- Goal alerts, half and full-time updates and red cards
3) Away Match News- Goal alerts, half and full-time updates and red cards
4) Teamsheets and after match quotes as they are submitted
5) Ticket news as it is announced

For example, if you want the latest daily, home match and ticket news send CCFC ON 1,2,5 to 82540.

It really is as simple as that. You have the freedom to change your selections at any time. If you wish to unsubscribe at any time text CCFC OFF to stop all messages being sent.

More information on the service will be available in every home game programme and keep your eyes peeled at the ground for posters and flyers. Text messages will cost no more than 25p each and an average of 30 will be sent each month.
