Like all fans of Coventry City, the Sky Blue Trust is watching with deep concern the latest twist in the dispute between owners of the Ricoh Arena, Arena Coventry Limited and the owners of Coventry City FC, SISU Capital.
The adjournment today by the judge of ACL’s application to the Court until Tuesday 26 March was made, we understand, in order to allow time for more clarity to be obtained about the position of the various companies involved in the running of the Club and the reported actions of the Club’s owners.
We are concerned about the rumours that SISU were exploring options for the Club to play home matches at another Midlands stadium. We feel strongly that City home games should be played in Coventry. We were pleased to hear an ACL representative confirm that this will continue to be possible, at the Ricoh.
The Sky Blue Trust is deeply concerned at the threats this continuing legal wrangling pose for the future of our Club. We hope the Football League will clarify the position from their point of view, as soon as possible.
However, it is now vital that we do all we can to support the Club and its staff at this time. We must not forget that there are people who depend on the Football Club for their livelihoods, and it is vital that their interests, and those of the wider community, are not forgotten in all of this.
The Trust is seeking early meetings with all interested parties as a matter of urgency, in order to register our interest and to explore positive ways forward. It is now vital that, as fans, we do all we can to secure a long-term, sustainable and successful future for the Club, based on sound financial management and a long-term plan. We believe firmly and unwaveringly that such a future depends on supporters being properly involved in the ownership and running of the Club.
