A state-of-the-art MxPro 5 fire alarm panel has been installed at Coventry City Football Club’s training facility.
The installation forms part of a six-figure scheme of upgrade works at Ryton Training Ground, where the Championship club has trained since the early 1960s. The ground’s two pitches and warm-up areas have also been totally reconstructed for the 2023/24 season, as new Executive Chairman and Owner Doug King seeks to improve the working environment for the Sky Blues players and staff.

Renowned for its reliability and advanced features, MxPro 5 was the ideal choice for Coventry City FC’s safety needs.
