Coventry City putting contingency plans in place for where it will play next season

Coventry City Football Club (CCFC) has confirmed that it is putting contingency plans in place regarding where it will play next season.
 
Tim Fisher, Chief Executive of CCFC said today: "The fact is that we are being locked out of the Ricoh Arena.

"We have been told that there is no further room for negotiation and an offer that we made to get back round the negotiating table has been rejected.

"It is with great regret that we now have no alternative but to consider other arrangements for next season and we would be failing the club, its supporters and its staff if we did not start making such plans now.

"The club is keeping the relevant football authorities fully informed of developments."
