Coventry supporters issue statement over rent dispute

07 December 2012 03:19

The Coventry City Supporters Consultation Group have issued a statement following an emergency meeting last night with Sky Blues CEO Tim Fisher.

The group backed by the main supporters clubs, websites, message boards and other interested supporters, has called for:

CCFC and ACL to resume discussions at the earliest opportunity to resolve this issue for the mutual benefit of both parties. This may require a formal arbitration process to support ongoing negotiations, but both parties should be lobbied and encouraged to find a mutually acceptable solution without further delay

CCFC should seek to agree the forward rent level as a matter of priority, against the agreement of both parties to resolve other issues against a prescribed timetable with key milestones

Coventry City have been given 21 days by Arena Coventry Limited to pay the £1.1m rent owed or face being wound up. The Sky Blues have intimated that they will instead seek new premises in which to play their first team matches.
