A petition calling for a railway station for Coventry City's new stadium has been signed by about 2,500 people.
Capacity at the stadium, a former gasworks, is 32,000
The original plan for a rail link on the Coventry to Nuneaton line was turned down by transport ministers who said there would not be enough demand.
Now Holbrook councillor Ann Lucas is to hand over the petition to a meeting of Coventry City Council next month.
She said a rail link would help ease traffic congestion around the Ricoh Arena on match and event days.
Ms Lucas said: "We really aren't asking much just a platform either side of the track so trains can stop.
"When these are in place we believe train operators will be competing to provide services both from Coventry and Nuneaton and large numbers of people frustrated by the current parking arrangements would be glad to be able to travel by train."
She hopes a new business plan for a rail station will be submitted to the Department for Transport.
Football fans have been urged to sign the petition, which was started in November last year.
The Ricoh Arena has a capacity of 32,000 and the average crowd this season has topped 21,000.
