New Stadium Statement Issued

Coventry City have said in a statement this morning that they have an agreement on a site for a stadium.

In a statement on the club website, Coventry City CEO Tim Fisher said: “We completely understand the pain the groundshare is going to cause our supporters but we have a clear path to return to the Coventry area.

“We are under no illusions at just how tough it is going to be for the next three years but there is absolutely no question that Coventry City Football Club’s long term future is in this area.

“Once we have agreement on a site, we will begin a consultation process with our supporters because we want this to be their home – a home that everyone can be proud of.

“And, of course, a home where the club has access to all matchday and non-matchday revenues which are crucial when it comes to financial fair play.”

City are aiming to get a deal on the site at Brandon Stadium completed in eight weeks and have brought in property consultants CBRE are advising on purchasing the land, planning consultants Turley Associates, Architects AFLS+P and Vectos as the highways consultant.
