Following the recent statement made by the Sky Blue Trust, Coventry City would like to take this chance to again reiterate that it is not liable for any costs related to the appeal against the judgement of the High Court made on Friday 14th July.
The club has not been liable for any costs related to previous court cases either, and no club employees or directors are working on the court appeal.
We remain focused on the day to day running of the club, and this is unaffected by court action taken by the shareholder and creditor-investor of the football club.
The Sky Blue Trust is correct in their statement that ‘Otium Entertainment Group trading as Coventry City Football Club’ is the company name for Coventry City Football Club. This is made clear on our website under ‘Company Details’, which is on the footer of each page online, and on many publicly available documents and contracts. Many clubs have a different company name to their playing names, and we are no different and this has never been under dispute.
The club continues to strive to build relationships with supporters groups including the Sky Blue Trust, the board of which enjoyed a positive first meeting with club Chief Executive Dave Boddy recently.
We look forward to further such meetings, and continuing to make arrangements with the Trust for Manager Mark Robins to appear at a forthcoming open meeting alongside maintaining dialogue on other issues and improvements we can make by working together.
