Club statement regarding venue arrangements for final three home league fixtures

Coventry City are hopeful that it will play their remaining three games of the season at the Ricoh Arena. The club moved staff over to its Ryton training ground last week and have cleared stock from its superstore at the Ricoh.

Chief Executive Tim Fisher said he is hopeful that a new short-term agreement with Arena Coventry can be negotiated so that Friday’s game against table-topping Doncaster could take place at the Ricoh.

“The long-term license was terminated by the administrator, but we are hopeful that Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd can reach agreement with ACL to allow the team to play its final three games of the season at the Ricoh.

“We appreciate that our supporters have been through a great deal of upset and uncertainty, and there is a responsibility on all parties to ensure that the question of where we play our remaining three home games is resolved as soon as possible. 

“Allowing supporters to watch the Sky Blues at the Ricoh for three games would be a sensible step forward. We have contacted ACL and hope to have some clarity in the next 24 hours.”
