Football League Likely To Be Flexible On Where City Play
Thirty Mile Regulation Could Be Waivered
According to the Coventry Telegraph's Les Reid, the regulations concerning clubs playing within thirty miles of their locality which was brought in after Wimbledon FC was up-rooted from South West London to Milton Keynes, could be ignored by the Football League if it helps SISU controlled Coventry City FC find a 'home' venue for matches.
In an article, Mr Reid has written: "The Telegraph understands the Football League is prepared to be flexible on how far away from Coventry the club might play on an interim basis - which scotches suggestions it would have to be within a 30-mile radius."
This would also mean that the currently empty Nene Park, which is having its electricity paid by an anonymous person or company, could be back in the reckoning.
