Coventry City could be kicked out of the EFL over Ricoh Arena future

Does the worrying ever stop for Coventry City supporters? The League One club’s future in the EFL is ‘in jeopardy’ and it’s all down to their future at Ricoh Arena.

The agreement to stay at the ground, owned by rugby team Wasps, is set to expire come the end of this season and the landlords refuse to have talks with Sky Blues owners Sisu until they end their legal action against them.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Sisu plan to “appeal the latest court judgement and continue court proceedings against Wasps and Coventry City Council”.

COVENTRY CITY CLUB STATEMENT:

Coventry City Football Club has learned of the decision of the club owners SISU to appeal the latest court judgement and continue court proceedings against Wasps and Coventry City Council.

For the avoidance of doubt, the shareholder drives the legal process and instructs legal counsel. The Club does not make any decision on the court proceedings nor does it pay any legal costs.

We reiterate the Club’s desire and need to agree a new deal to continue to play matches at the Ricoh Arena.

We want this deal to happen, as we believe supporters and the wider community do too, and everyone at Coventry City Football Club will work tirelessly in our attempts to make this happen. Without this, our place in the EFL and the Club’s future is in jeopardy.

An EFL spokesman told the CoventryLive website: “The EFL continues to be in regular dialogue with Coventry City regarding its ongoing stadium issues.

“We will continue to engage with the Club as it works to secure a successful resolution to these matters.”

 

Coventry City fans took to reply to the club statement over the news of the court action decision by the owners Sisu, others felt frustrated that the EFL were not doing enough – take a look at what the fans are saying on the next page.
