The Football League has 'reluctantly' approved an application for Coventry City to play at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium. Coventry will play its home matches at Sixfields for an initial period of three seasons.
Like all Sky Blues fans, we want Coventry City Football Club playing in Coventry. We have repeatedly said that we are happy to discuss terms to allow the Sky Blues to continue playing at the Ricoh Arena – and have even offered to allow them to play for free while the club remains in administration. This offer was made a month ago and we still have not had a response.
We are therefore deeply disappointed at the Football League’s decision to allow the club to leave the city for three years.
The Ricoh Arena is available to them. We want them here. The fans want them here.

ITV News Central has been told that secret talks between Coventry City and the Ricoh Arena to try to keep the club in the city have failed.
If Coventry is going to buy land to build a new stadium just outside the city, why has it not spoken to council bosses yet?
Why is the Ricoh Arena threatening to sue Northampton Town?
