Coventry to play their home games at St Andrews

Sunday 26th May 2019

Coventry City will play their home matches at Birmingham City’s St Andrews stadium next season. The move comes after Coventry failed to reach an agreement with Wasps rugby about sharing the Ricoh Arena.

It’s the 2nd time in recent years that the Sky Blues have been left homeless, having used Northampton’s Sixfields stadiums for the 2013/2014 season.

At least this is a little better for Cov fans though - St Andrews is a 44 mile round trip from the Ricoh, compared to the 72 mile round trip to Northampton. That’s scant consolation to their supports who are bitterly disappointed with the news.
