The Sky Blue Trust is pleased that the long-running and costly court case is now over and hopes that today’s Supreme Court decision heralds the apparent conclusion to off field distractions.
Perhaps now the Club’s owners can try to restore amicable, business-like relations with all the organisations they have alienated during this protracted, acrimonious dispute to establish, for the good of the supporters, a positive future for the club.
The Trust calls on SISU to put a stop to any further court action and return to the negotiating table to secure a sustainable future for the Club at the Ricoh Arena and to resolve the issues with its training facility and academy or, if they have no such inclination, to put the club up for sale to secure a new owner who is committed to a long-term, successful future for Coventry City FC.
The Trust has offered to meet with SISU to discuss ways forward but to date these have been rebuffed, that offer still standsWrite comment (0 Comments)
