Where will Coventry City play for the 2019/2020 season? St. Andrews or the Ricoh Arena? The ongoing issues regarding Coventry City are far from over.
On the pitch it’s been nothing but positivity for Mark Robins’, Coventry City, after finishing 8th in League One following promotion from League Two the year before, it is only onward and upward for the young Sky Blues side.
However, off the field it is very different affairs, as the ongoing dispute between Coventry City owners, Sisu; Ricoh Arena owners, Wasps RFC and Coventry City Council; over where the football club will play next season is the question on everyone’s lips.
The football clubs owners, Sisu have made it clear that they have a desire to stay at the Ricoh Arena and were in talks with Wasps RFC.
This was later stopped by Wasps after details emerged that Sisu made a complaint to the European courts over the sale of the Ricoh Arena from the council to the rugby club.
Wasps refused to continue talks with Sisu over this matter and so Sisu have made it clear that a deal has been made for the club to play their 2019/2020 League One home fixtures at Birmingham City’s, St Andrews.
After a statement from the Coventry City owners, it is understood that they have restarted talks with Wasps and are hoping to reach an agreement that suits all parties.
The Sky Blue fans have been very patient over the past year with the negotiations continuing, with fans sparking protests throughout the season, hoping their owners finally leave the club that is loved by thousands.
It looks as though Sisu will not back out and will continue to try and run the club, if that is successful or not, who knows, but since their takeover in 2007, they have done little to help the club move forward.
