U.S. Billionaire Agrees To Purchase Half Of Coventry City's Stadium, Invest In Squad
Published March 25, 2013
ON THE MOVE: The BBC reported Coventry City "have moved all staff and club shop stock from the Ricoh Arena to their training ground after a non-operating subsidiary of the club was placed into administration." Club staff "have been assured their posts are unaffected" (BBC, 3/23). In London, James Riach wrote if Coventry City enter administration, "then they will automatically be deducted 10 points by the Football League this season, ending their promotion hopes in League One." It has been suggested that for the points to be deducted during this campaign the administration order "would have to be made by next Thursday." ACL, however, "believes that is not the case and that the deadline" is April 27 (GUARDIAN, 3/22).
