Coventry City releases statement regarding administration

Coventry City Football Club Holdings has confirmed that a non-operating subsidiary of the Club has today been placed into administration.

It's important to stress that the Football Club itself is not under threat.

This is merely a property subsidiary which owns no material assets and has no employees, on or off the pitch.

The Club can confirm that all staff wages, PAYE and all other creditor commitments will continue to be met as before by Coventry City Football Club Holdings.

Unlike other instances of clubs being taken either wholly or partially into administration, there are no HMRC or VAT implications.

Our main objective is to remain competitive on the pitch and give Steven Pressley and players our full backing and commitment.

– A spokesman for the Club

The Football Club says that it will continue to trade as normal without interruption.
