Read: Coventry City FC will appeal stadium decision ruling

Following Justice Hickinbottom's High Court ruling that Coventry City Councils decision to lend ACL 14.4m was not unlawful, we urge all sides in this unfortunate, bitter and unproductive dispute to put it and all past differences aside and to move forward together.

Stop wasting time, energy and money on legal actions and to start working together to find a solution that ensures the Sky Blues kick off the new season at the Ricoh Arena..

There are no winners in this sorry saga only losers, especially the supporters of Coventry City FC. For the sake of these long suffering fans bring our team home to Coventry now.
