The Spion Kop Terrace

The Spion Kop Terrace was built in 1922. It was made all seated in 1981 when Coventry City became the first club in England to have an all seated stadium. The experiment failed four years later the seats were removed from the Kop and it became all standing once again. The Kop was replaced by a new East Stand (costing 4.3m) in 1993.

Record Attendance: 51,455 v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Division 2, April 29th, 1967.

The club moved to the Ricoh Arena in 2005.

Highfield Road was demolished and re-developed with a housing estate.
