Coventry City's hopes of getting to Wembley for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final ended tonight.
They lost 2-0 away at Bristol City in the Southern Section semi-final.
Wasps have announced plans to lay a temporary new pitch at the Ricoh Arena ahead of Coventry City's next home game.
The pitch has been much-criticised by a number of visiting teams and even by the Sky Blues manager Steven Pressley.
It's difficult to play in the manner that I want my team to play in on that pitch. The standard of the pitch is so poor.
In fact, at this moment in time, the Ricoh Arena pitch is probably the worst in the entire Football League.
Wasps say they will fully relay the pitch over the summer in order to be ready for the 2015/16 season.
The club's subsidiary ACL (Arena Coventry Ltd), which owns 50% of the stadium, will fund the temporary replacement.
The surface is expected to be ready in time for Coventry's next home game against Fleetwood Town on 20 December.
We are not willing to compromise on the quality of the playing surface and recognise that this issue needs to be addressed now, so we have provided the best temporary solution available to us.
Wasps' match will be on 21 December against London Irish following their purchase of 50% of the stadium.

Hundreds of fans are scrambling to get tickets to Coventry City's match against Gillingham next week.
The club has been playing its home games at Northampton for over a year, and fans are desperate to be present for the Sky Blues' long-awaited homecoming.
People have been queueing to buy tickets since 3am this morning, and the line is stretching back from the kiosk through the car park.
Meanwhile, those fans who have opted to purchase tickets online are facing long delays as the website struggles to cope with demand.
The football club say the site is still functioning, but that fans will have to be patient. They are also answering as many phone calls as possible.
The Coventry City football store was the scene of a ram-raid last night, with initial enquiries suggesting a Ford Focus reversed through the windows before a "large number" of the club's home and away strips were stolen.
Police were alerted to the raid at the unit on the Gallagher retail park shortly before 9.45pm last night.
Detective Sergeant Jon Fanti, from Coventry Police, said:
Initial inquiries suggest that around four people were inside the Ford Focus with four more travelling on two motorbikes.
The car sustained extensive rear end damage and the exhaust was torn off by the force of the collision.
I’m asking that anyone who may have seen the car or two motorbikes before or after the burglary to in touch.
Among the kits stolen were 16 of the new white away shirts size XXXXL. If you’re offered one of these at a price which it too good to be true, you need to think about how that person came by them and what they’ll be doing with your hard earned cash.
CCTV footage which may have captured the burglars in action has been secured.
Meanwhile forensic scene investigators are scouring the store for clues while the investigation continues.

Ex Coventry City player and manager Bobby Gould has called for a face-to-face meeting with the Sky Blues' boss.
Last night, supporters held another protest, ahead of their 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat to Cardiff City, in the ongoing row over the Ricoh Arena. It has led to the club playing their home matches in Northampton.
Coventry City lost 2-1 in their Capital One Cup tie against Cardiff City this evening.
Cardiff went ahead with an early goal in the fourth minute by Guido Burgstaller.
An own goal by Coventry's Ryan Haynes put the Welsh side into a two goal lead, but just minutes later his cross was met by Shaun Miller, who secured a consolation goal for Coventry.
Prior to the the match supporters from both sides held a joint protest, claiming they have been let down by the football authorities.
Coventry's concerns remain about the ongoing row with the owners of the Ricoh arena, with the club's home games still being played 35 miles away in Northampton.
Coventry City fans are to protest again tonight at the club's Capital One Cup match against Cardiff City, at the Sixfields Stadium in Northampton.
The Sky Blues Trust say they feel let down by the club's owners, and adding that supporters feel the club's return to Coventry is 'as far away as ever'.
The Sky Blue Trust has welcomed the news that after more than a year the Football League has finally made a decision on a payment owed to the operators of the Ricoh Arena, appearing to remove one of the major obstacles to a potential return to the ground.
Now that this particular impediment has been cleared up we would urge ACL to agree that it is no longer a barrier to talks with the club.
The fact that they may not agree with the Football League’s calculations is a matter to be resolved between them and the Football League and should not hinder the start of negotiations to bring the club back to Coventry as quickly as possible.
We need the Sky Blues back at the Ricoh before it’s too late – we need ACL to accept that the Football League decision is not a reason not to start talks and we need SISU to cease their pointless legal actions so as to allow negotiations to begin.
Coventry City supporters have been continually let down during this long running dispute – this is an opportunity to act positively – don’t let us down again.
