City Chief Exec. To Speak At Trust Open Meeting, Monday 6th October
The next Sky Blue Trust Open meeting will be held at The Squirrel Pub,Greyfriars Lane,Coventry,CV1 2GY on Monday October 6th starting at 7.30pm.
We are pleased to confirm that Coventry City FC Chief Executive Steve Waggott has agreed to join us as our special guest to answer your questions.
Last time Steve joined us proved to be a most interesting and entertaining evening and I'm sure it will be just as enjoyable this time round.
So if you want to know about the club's future plans, Steve's new role as CEO, his thoughts on the team's start to the season, the return to the Ricoh, the latest speculation regarding Wasps or anything else about the Sky Blues then please come along.
The recent story in the Coventry Telegraph about Wasps rugby club taking a majority stake in ACL, the Ricoh Arena operating company, raises some major concerns among Coventry City supporters. The Sky Blue Trust has stated that it believes that for the good of the football club its long term future lies at the Ricoh Arena, either as tenants or owners, with access to all relevant income streams and, on the face of it, this news makes that future uncertain. We are in contact with all the relevant parties, Coventry City Council, ACL, Higgs Charity and CCFC to establish the facts and the potential implications on the future of Coventry City. Once we have obtained these, we will be in a position to advise our members and make a decision on what stance and, if necessary, what actions the Sky Blue Trust should take. Until we have a clearer picture of exactly what the situationis, it would be unwise to base any policy or actions on a solitary newspaper report.

We'd like to bring to the attention of our members, and other supporters a newly released movie, "Jack to a King - The Swansea Story", that should bring hope not just to Coventry City supporters but all football supporters of clubs not enjoying the best of times.
This documentary film charts the incredible story of Swansea City Football Club's momentous journey to the Premier League, recounting the remarkable tale of how a group of dedicated Swansea City fans came together to save their football club.
It is the story of how the club was sold for just £1 in 2001 and then just 10 years later achieved the £90 million promotion to the Premier League.
The film will be airing in selected cinemas throughout the country and is currently showing at the Odeon Panton Street in Londons West End.
It will also be released in digital and dvd format in December.Write comment (0 Comments)
