Ricoh Arena: Future unclear

Paul Appleton met for over two hours with creditors of Coventry City Football Club Limited, which was placed in administration by hedge fund owners SISU in March - although Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) continues to operate.

Administration of the non-operating subsidiary was announced the day before a High Court application by Arena Coventry Limited (ACL), who manage the Ricoh Arena, following a year of unpaid rent by the Sky Blues.

Around 15 Coventry supporters gathered outside the creditors' meeting to show their staunch opposition to plans by Coventry chief executive Tim Fisher to groundshare for the next three years while a new stadium is being built for the club to relocate to.

An ACL spokesman said: "Following the adjournment of the creditors' meeting the administrator will continue his investigations into the affairs of CCFC Limited.

"This follows his welcome confirmation last Friday that ownership of the Football League Golden Share lies in CCFC Limited.

"ACL will continue to do all it can to work with the administrator and the Football League to resolve matters.

"We are a successful business and want the Sky Blues to be part of our continued success in the years to come. Our doors are open to the club and there is no need whatsoever for them to be playing outside the city of Coventry."
