NEWS: Sky Blues supporting campaign for Coventry Bees to return to Brandon Stadium

9 December 2020

Coventry City Football Club are pleased to support the campaign for Coventry Bees Speedway to return to Brandon Stadium.

Brandon Stadium was home of Coventry Bees from 1928 to 2016, with The Bees one of the most famous and successful teams in Speedway.

Brandon Stadium today lies derelict with several planning applications having been made for a new housing estate, but Bees enthusiasts are campaigning for the return of Speedway to the stadium and the Sky Blues are fully behind their efforts.

Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:

“It would be wonderful to see the famous Coventry Bees back in action at Brandon Stadium and, as a sporting institution that knows about stadium issues and playing outside of our City, we are fully behind this campaign.

“The Bees have a rich sporting heritage, not just in Coventry and surrounding areas, but around the world with iconic names like Ole Olsen, Tommy Knudsen and in more recent times Chris Harris and Scott Nicholls.

“I have personally been to Brandon and enjoyed watching the Bees. Speedway is a thrilling sport for all generations and if the sport can return to Brandon it will be a massive boost to thousands of people throughout the region.

“I wish the campaign well and, if successful, look forward to visiting for a night of high-adrenaline racing.”
