Following today's Coventry Telegraph story reporting Gary Hoffman's offer to pay the rent at the Ricoh Arena for the next three seasons in a move to ensure Coventry City remains in Coventry,
The Sky Blue Trust have been in contact with the Football League who confirmed that they have seen this and that it has been passed on to the relevant members of the Football League Board. They also added that the reason the board took the decision to sanction the move to Northampton was because they believed they had a stark choice - allow the club to play at Northampton or have nowhere to play. We dispute that this is the case and have demanded to meet urgently with those that actually made this decision. We have been advised that it is not too late for this decision to be reversed as the decision made was that Coventry can play at Northampton, not that they must play at Northampton. If we can prove a better alternative exists the board may then reconsider. We will therefore be making these representations and hope to meet with the Football League board at the earliest opportunity. We will keep you updated of any developments.
