Jimmy Hill Statue Ricoh Arena Coventry

Jimmy Hill managed the Club between 1961 and 1967, taking Coventry City up from the old Division 3 to Division 1. During his tenure he made a number of changes at the Club that became known as the 'Sky Blue revolution'. This included changing the team colours from all white with royal blue trim, to all sky blue.

The statue which cost £150,000 was unveiled by Jimmy Hill himself in July 2011.
