“Sport Relief is a great way for the whole sporting world to engage with a good cause,” added City’s defender Bruno Berner.

“We are extremely happy to support it and draw attention to the cause at the Coventry City fixture. I would encourage our fans to make a donation to Sport Relief and help in any way that they can. It’s an honour to be a part of this initiative as it brings everybody involved in sport together.”
