Mark Robins is waiting for a 2020/21 start date to be confirmed before calling his players back to the club’s Ryton-on-Dunsmore training base and starting their gruelling pre-season routine.
The adored Sky Blues chief will work backwards from a date, once confirmed, to ensure his side get the best preparation possible ahead of their Championship challenge with behind-closed-doors friendlies on the cards.
Reports have suggested that the start of the season could come during September with the transfer window stretching into October, but those dates are no more than speculation at this stage.
It is also expected that the Championship season will start as it has finished this term, behind closed doors.
Coventry have budgeted cautiously ahead of next term and have prepared for a scenario in which no fans will be present until the half-way point, CoventryLive understands, in a move that will protect the club from the worst-case scenario.
