Wanderers fans are able to benefit from a special deal for group bookings for Friday’s match at Coventry City (k.o. 7.45pm).
The Sky Blues publicised an offer of 10 tickets for £10 each – or six tickets for £15 each – to their own supporters last week without sharing such information with Wycombe, who had already sold more than 150 tickets to their fans.
Wycombe have taken the necessary action to ensure that fans who have already purchased tickets but would have benefitted from this new group booking offer can contact the Wycombe Wanderers ticket office from 10am on Monday to have the relevant discount applied to their order and refunded.
The two group booking deals will also be available for Wycombe fans who have yet to purchase their tickets; call 01494 441118 or visit the shop at Adams Park from 10am on Monday to take advantage.

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
From Wycombe take the northbound M40 signed Birmingham. At Junction 10 take the A43 signed Northampton, to pick up the north bound M1. At Junction 19 bear left to take the M6 exit sign posted Coventry / Birmingham. Leave the M6 at Junction 3 and take the A444 (South) towards Coventry City Centre.

Suggested car parking area
On-site car parking is available for £10 in car parks A, B or C, while official off-site car parking is available from £3 at www.ricoharenaparking.co.uk. Car Parks A and B are located on-site at the Ricoh Arena and can be accessed via the main entrance on Judds Lane. Car Park C is located adjacent to the stadium, and can be accessed from the A444. It is advisable to book these through CCFC in advance. The Club also make use of a number of car parks within walking distance of the stadium, in such places as factory units and local schools. The cost of these car parks varies but is usually around £3-£5 per vehicle. Further details are available on the Ricoh Arena Parking website.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 16.00. Travel prices are £17 for adults, £16 for seniors, and £15 for juniors. The price for non-members is £22 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) you need to do so by Wednesday 20th December at 5pm.
Fancy using the train?
This is not recommended. Virgin Trains are planning industrial action on that date. In addition the last train back off Coventry is at 21:25 hrs. Coventry Stadium is about three and a half miles away from the stadium. The Arena does have its own station but there is only one single carriage train which runs just once an hour on match days.
Facilities for away fans
Away supporters are mostly accommodated behind the goal in one side of the South Stand (Blocks 6 & 7) towards the corner with the West Stand. This area can accommodate around 3,000. The angle of the stand is quite steep, meaning a fair bit of effort to climb to the top. There is a red coloured track surrounding the playing area and the stand itself is further set-back from the pitch. You are some way therefore from the playing action. The leg room is adequate and the stadium does have good acoustics. Entrance to the stadium is through automatic turnstiles, where you have to put your ticket (which has a bar code on it) into a slot reader, which then allows the turnstiles admit you. Behind the stands there are spacious concourses and a number of food and drink outlets.
Spare time before or after match?
At the stadium, near to the Club Shop, is the Grosvenor Casino. This has bars inside and also shows televised sport. Both home and away fans are admitted. This does have a strict over 18's policy. Alternatively alcohol is also available inside the stadium. It is a bit of a walk to the nearest hostelries. About a fifteen minute walk away is Longford where the “JK English Pub”, the “Longford Engine” and the “Coach & Horses” all welcome away fans. Around a ten minute walk away from the away turnstiles is the Arena Shopping Centre. As well as having a large Tesco's that has a cafe, there are also a Greggs, Subway, Marks & Spencer’s Cafe, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Burger King and a Frankie & Bennies.
