Coventry To Play In Brum

Coventry City will play their home games at Birmingham City's St Andrew's ground next season after failing to agree terms to remain at the Ricoh Arena. A Coventry statement read: "We know full well that this is a very sad day for Coventry City and Sky Blues supporters. This decision was our last resort and was made to ensure the club can fulfil its fixtures next season. We are incredibly disappointed and extremely frustrated that continuing differences between our owners Sisu and Wasps, and also Coventry City Council, could not be set aside to allow for a deal to play the club's home games at the Ricoh Arena. The Ricoh Arena is the stadium built to be the football club's home, and our fans should be able to watch their team play in the city that we are proud to represent. However, in order for a deal to be agreed between landlord and tenant, the conditions for the deal need to be deliverable by the tenant. What the landlord requested of CCFC's owners and ultimately, the club, was simply not deliverable."

Amine and I will bear the expenses for surgeries of 1,000 children in need."
