Coventry City’s Why&When photographic campaign

A photographic campaign has been launched to raise awareness of the current plight of Coventry fans.

Sky Blues supporters are forced to travel to Northampton to watch their team’s home games at the moment.

Digital agency Green Knight Media is behind the photos. Photojournalist Andy Scaysbrook, a Coventry fan, has been snapping fellow supporters.

He said: “I grew up watching Coventry City, from the age of six, my family were season ticket holders. My father and my grandad took me to Highfield Road during the days of the Sky Blue revolution that was led by Jimmy Hill in the 1960s.

“I started my photographic career working for the club, shooting action pictures for the matchday programme. In my 44 years of being a City fan I have travelled all over the country to support the team. We have been through some terrible times over the years but the situation at the club is now desperate. Through all of this, the fans have stood firm and sought to work to try and find a solution to the horrendous situation we now find ourselves in.

“I know many City fans and the desperation they feel is awful. I want to be able to put these feelings into pictures and help raise the profile of our plight, hence the Why&When photography campaign.”
