Northampton Town games will take priority over Coventry City

When the home fixtures clash, Northampton Town's games will take priority and Coventry's games will be played second. That means if both teams are at home on the same weekend, Coventry will play on the Sunday and if there is a midweek clash, Coventry will play on the Wednesday. No Northampton Town games will be moved as part of this arrangement, subject to any television requirements.

– David Cardoza, Northampton Town Chairman

Coventry will play its home matches at Sixfields for an initial period of three seasons, after the Football League 'reluctantly' approved its application.

Fans boycott Coventry City

Thousand of fans are expected to boycott Coventry City's first 'home' fixture to be played out of the city for 130 years. The club will play fixtures at Northampton's Sixfields stadium after leaving the Ricoh because of a row over rent arrears.
