The Coventry City London Supporters Club (CCLSC) was
formed on the 22nd November 1976 by a handful of enthusiastic sky blue fans
based in London. Membership is currently around the 200 mark with members spread
around the globe, the majority of whom originated from the Coventry area and
moved for work reasons.
As members of the Association of Football Supporters
Clubs in London (APFSCIL) and the Football Supporters Federation (FSF), CCLSC is
able to provide group travel to all home and away games from London, often
travelling with opposition fans in joint travel arrangements.
Social activities are a regular feature in the CCLSC
diary. Bobby Gould, John Sillett, George Curtis, Stuart Robson, Jimmy Hill, Mike
McGinnity and Gary McAllister are just a few of the celebrities who have
addressed the supporters club at various functions in London over the years.
The Sky Blue Special magazine, now in its 27th volume,
is published quarterly and conveys club information and fan's point of views.
On the sports scene CCLSC have participated in APFSCIL
quizzes, fun runs, darts and soccer competitions, winning numerous trophies
along the way, including a prestigious European trophy in 1989 - the Swiss fans
club soccer championship held in Zurich.
Merchandising raises vital revenue to subsidise club
activities and our internal designer has produced CCLSC designed scarfs, pens,
mugs, sweaters and metal lapel badges. One design was voted third in the British
Association of Badge Collectors annual poll 1994.
The CCLSC "Phil Barlow" trophy is presented annually to
the player attaining most votes in a season long poll amongst club members. At
the recent 25th anniversary gala dinner at the Regents Park Marriot Hotel, Swiss
Cottage, Steve Ogrizovic was presented with a glass crystal football as the
CCLSC player of the millenium.
