Coventry City Holds Talks With Hinckley United Over Stadium Share
Published December 17, 2012
PAYING THE RENT: The BBC reported the owners of Coventry's Ricoh Arena, Arena Coventry Limited, has issued Coventry with a Boxing Day deadline to "pay the claimed amount of rent, or face a winding-up petition." However, the Sky Blues believe that the rent is "too high in relation to other clubs of a similar level, and are keen to negotiate with ACL." The club is also interested in "retaining some of the match-day revenue, which currently goes to ACL" (BBC, 12/13).
PORT VALE ALSO OFFERS: The Staffordshire SENTINEL reported League Two side Port Vale CEO Norman Smurthwaite said that he "would allow Coventry City to play at Vale Park." Coventry-born millionaire Smurthwaite said, "If City end up needing a stadium, I'd be prepared to do a ground share. They haven't asked, but I'd to do it until the end of this season, though I wouldn't do it next season because we'll be playing them in League One. We certainly wouldn't let them come for free. But I would enter dialogue with them" (SENTINEL, 12/15).
