Coventry City and problems at the Ricoh Can't Post or Reply Privately

More problems for Coventry City, who face homelessness next season after failing to secure a future at the Ricoh Arena for the 2019/20 season...

The EFL have given CCFC until 25th April to secure a new home for next season. Otherwise, they could be expelled from the Football League.

I'm thinking that the owners are pushing this until the last minute in a hope they will get a better deal.

Is Theresa May working on the negotiations?

Iíd have thought staying close to their fan base should be a priority this time, rather than going to Northampton or the like again.

Iíve not been to the Coventry Rugby ground, but is there any chance they could bring that up to FL standards with a couple of temporary stands? Looking a photos the Main Stand it seems impressive for a non-professional rugby club. I just donít know if their is space around the rest of the ground to stick a couple of temporaryís.

That one has been talked about loads and I think its a non starter also Norman Smurthwaite came out earlier in the week denying he had spoken to Cov about a groundshare at Nuneaton Borough.

No chance at all. There is only one show in town. It should also be pointed out that Coventry Rugby Chairman (and head honcho) is on the record as saying that he will not deal with Sisu under any circumstances because of what they have done to the city.

Things seem to have gone quiet on any proposed share at Burton seemingly leaving Birmingham City as favourite through there is apparently another club in the running,

Leicester would be ideal but seeing as they often play reserve games elsewhere I doubt they would entertain such an idea but the clock is ticking for a solution to be found.

If anyone hasnt seen this -

https://www.ccfc.co.uk/...ng-efl-board-update/

"Coventry City today provided an update to the EFL Board, as was requested.

The Football Club confirmed to the EFL that it is close to the Head of Terms stage with two groundshare options. Coventry City will now progress to working on finalising terms with the Clubs and Stadiums involved."

There is some chatter on a couple of rugby forums that all may not be well with Wasps.

They are struggling to half-fill the Ricoh for Premiership games and the loss of rental income from Coventry wonít help.

They will need to work harder at attracting more ancillary events as 11 Premiership fixtures and 4 or 5 European fixtures isnít going to justify the purchase and maintenance of that stadium.

Letís be honest, Coventry City donít half fill it & the place is a soulless white elephant.

There are some right prats on that forum and they should be careful what they wish for as Wasps are carrying debts of £35m which could increase considerably after court cases and could well end up with them bankrupt. I have never had any time for Cov but feel for them over this. A decent stadium which was purposely built for them and this is what they are having to put up with yet again.

The Supreme Court today announced that Sisu had been refused leave to appeal against the latest court ruling against them with regard to the sale of the Ricoh Arena. Their only remaining hope is the European Court. Predictably both Wasps and Coventry City Council were enthusiastic in their response to the verdict and called on Sisu to at long last drop the court case; equally predictably there was no comment from Sisu.
In a separate development Birmingham City were revealed as one of the two clubs who have agreed preliminary details on a ground share whilst Coventry RFC have denied the report in today's Times which says that they are the other.

Sky Sports News were yesterday reporting Birmingham and an "unnamed EFL club" so that does narrow it down (a bit).
