There is a lot of speculation circulating on the internet concerning the future of the Ricoh Arena.
Any proposition must and can ensure that the recent deal that brought the Sky Blues back to the Ricoh Arena is honoured, and that includes primacy for the football club’s fixtures.
Speculation that this is in jeopardy is unfounded.
Coventry City Council have a responsibility to the citizens of Coventry to develop and maximise the economic potential of the Ricoh Arena. If that can be achieved, and at the same time Coventry’s sporting reputation enhanced, the opportunity should be seized. I would like to see Coventry propelled up the ranks of sporting cities and local people given the opportunity to watch top class sport without having to travel.
