Another Day, Another Twist

Hard on the heels of reports that Arena Coventry Limited are one of the interested parties in CCFC comes the news that the club have been offered use of the Ricoh Arena rent-free.

A statement from ACL reads: 'To enable the football club to fulfil its commitments under Football League regulations, and to provide stability whilst Coventry City Football Club Limited, which owns the League Share, remains in administration, ACL has agreed to allow the club to play its homes games free of any rental fee, therefore removing any need for the supporters to travel outside the city to watch home games.'

It's a winning move (publicity wise) from ACL although their comment that they 'have been deeply concerned with how the emotions of Coventry City Football Club supporters have been tested over recent months' is a little over the top.

SISU are likely to respond with a firm 'thanks but no thanks' but the possibility of an ACL-led takeover is an intriguing one given the control they already hold over the stadium.

All eyes on the administrator again!

You only have to look at the headlines this generated to see it is a smart move by ACL - their interest in buying the club is intriguing - would they pass it straight on to someone else if successful?
