Can the Sky Blues still play at the Ricoh Arena?
Last week it was confirmed that Coventry City will be playing their homes games at Birmingham City’s, St Andrews.
However, it turns out that the Sky Blues will be allowed to move back to the Ricoh Arena if the clubs owners, Sisu and Ricoh Arena tenants, Wasps agree a deal.
It was revealed that both parties are still in negotiations over an improved deal. As well as telling supporters that their are only a few terms that both Sisu and Wasps can’t agree on, which is the only reason why the club are not there.
However, Coventry City manager, Marks Robins believes that the Ricoh Arena is for the football club and a rugby team from London have no right to play there.
The Sky Blues gaffer said, “It is a complete and utter disgrace that the Ricoh Arena, which again, was built as the home of Coventry City Football Club, is owned by a Rugby Club that has its roots in Buckinghamshire.
“How can that happen?
“Coventry is ‘City of Sport’ in 2019 – this is an absolute joke.”
He also praised Birmingham for letting the club fulfil their fixtures, “I would like to thank Birmingham City Football Club for their support in helping us to make sure we fulfil our fixtures and exist. Our first priority was to keep the Club going and we have done that.”
For Coventry City now it’s up for the clubs owners to bring the club back to Coventry as soon as possible. When will that happen, who knows?
