ACL Call On Football League To Act

ACL Call On Football League To Act

Ricoh Arena stadium company Arena Coventry Limited (ACL) have said that their offer to use the ground remains open to Coventry City FC and that they want the Football League to block a groundshare with Northampton Town.

In a statement, a spokesperson for ACL said: 'We want to see the Sky Blues playing home games in their home city at their rightful home the Ricoh Arena.

'This is what the supporters of Coventry City are pleading for.

'The way the fans have been treated by the Club`s owners is utterly cruel and any proposal that the Club should be ripped from Coventry and relocated to Northampton, or anywhere else outside the city, is absolutely heart breaking for everyone involved. It cannot make financial sense for the Club.

'With the Club set to remain in administration for some months to come, we have already made an offer to the Joint Administrator for them to play at the Ricoh Arena during this time.'

Vital View The Football League, whose slogan is 'Real Football, Real Fans' must act now, if not on the issue of ownership of Coventry City FC, by blocking the groundshare with Northampton Town.

An offer still exists for a suitable stadium in Coventry to play games at and plans for a new ground are at such an embryonic stage that the move to Northampton cannot be justified.

While all parties with a stake in CCFC have made errors in the past the news of a move away from the city has come from the owners alone and moves over a defining line.
