Coventry City locked in talks with Championship club as search for new home goes on

Published

Coventry City remain locked in negotiations with Championship side, Birmingham City over a potential ground share for next year’s campaign according to Sky Sports. 

Their deal to rent the Ricoh Arena from Wasps expires at the end of the season and no fresh agreement has been reached as of yet.

If a resolution isn’t reached, then the each club in the Football League will vote whether Coventry should be expelled from the league in nine days time.

It has also been reported that Coventry are also in discussions with Coventry rugby club over potentially moving into their 4,000 capacity stadium for next season.

It’s a far from ideal scenario for the club to be in, but they’ll be hoping to have a new home in place in the near future so that they can focus on matters on the pitch.

Coventry kept their hopes of finishing inside the play-off places alive with an astonishing, 5-4 win away at Sunderland which means they are eight points adrift of the play-off places.

The Sky Blues are next in action when they host Bradford City in a game which they will be expected to pick up three points against a Bradford side can be relegated on Friday.

The Verdict: 

What a frustrating scenario this is.

You have to feel that if their off-the-field problems had been resolved much earlier, then we might have seen some improvement with results on the pitch.

They need to have this sorted ASAP, otherwise I fear for their future in the Football League.
