Liverpool fans have been given a glimpse into how their side will lift the Premier League trophy after Coventry City held a ‘socially distanced’ promotion celebration at their Sky Blue Lodge training ground
The Sky Blues were confirmed as SkyBet League One champions last week after EFL clubs voted in favour of ending the season using points per game.
That decision saw the club finish in the top spot in the third division – but they were unable to celebrate their rise to the Championship with their fans due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead, the club held a ‘CCFC Promotion Party’ live on YouTube, watched by tens of thousands, that saw the players get involved via video call as a Ministry of Sound DJ played from the top of one of the City’s tallest buildings.

But Liverpool fans, who could see their Premier League title confirmed as early as next week, were shown how their players will likely lift the Premier League trophy – two metres apart and wearing rubber gloves!
Mark Robins’ players were given their medals on Friday at the club’s training ground where they waited patiently in line, the appropriate distance apart, before stooping their heads to receive their medals.
And then the players gathered around the trophy, spaced apart once again, as captain Liam Kelly assumed his designated spot next to the trophy before lifting it in the air as he teammates drenched him with champagne.
The next day the players were back together again, this time virtually, taking part in scavenger hunts and being handed their end of season awards via conference call.
And the party ended with an almighty firework display that could be seen across the City – capping off the most unique of celebration parties.
Liverpool need only five points to confirm their first league triumph in 30 years, and then their own party can begin.
