Ricoh say Sky Blues can play at stadium 'rent free'

The firm which owns the Ricoh Arena has said Coventry City can play at the stadium, without having to pay rent whilst the club is in administration.

Arena Coventry Limited (ACL), which runs the Ricoh, has informed the Football League and the club's administrator about the offer.

To enable the Football Club to fulfil its commitments under Football League Regulations, and to provide stability whilst Coventry City Football Club Limited, which owns the League Share, remains in Administration, ACL has agreed to allow the club to play its homes games free of any rental fee, therefore removing any need for the supporters to travel outside the City to watch home games.

Supporters groups have criticised Coventry City's current owner, Sisu, for planning to move the Sky Blues out of the city for three years, while it builds a new stadium.
