Fisher Wants talks to resume

Coventry City CEO Tim Fisher has said that the club want to get back round the table with Arena Coventry Limited to discuss the Ricoh rent.

Speaking to the Coventry Observer's Steve Carpenter, Mr Fisher said:“Although I find it strange that neither Nicholas Carter or Jacky Issac (ACL chief executive) have been at the meetings to date, we want to sit down with them face-to-face to discuss the prospect of mediation.

“In the first instance, I think it important that both Nicholas and Jacky explain where this "rent" figure of 150K has come from.

“I sense they are mixing a 400k rent number with both their Food and Beverage guesstimate and a rates rebate - both of which are completely separate.”

Mr Fisher admitted that SISU had considered a new stadium and said: “We could then control all of our revenues, just as the club did at Highfield Road, and build a sustainable base for the club to prosper.

“Of course this would involve a full consultation with supporters but this is something we do not want to do even though financially it makes a lot more sense than staying at the Ricoh.”
