New Joint Statement by Coventry City Football Club and the University of Warwick

Coventry City Football Club and the University of Warwick are pleased to provide an update to fans and to our community regarding progress in the development of a new stadium.

Work between the Football Club, its owners and the University of Warwick has been ongoing since the announcement of the project in July, with a number of meetings both between the organisations and with external parties having taken place and much work going on behind-the-scenes, with the aim of developing a new home for the Sky Blues. 

In the first week of November the leadership of the University of Warwick, and the owners and management of Coventry City Football Club, held a further productive and very positive formal meeting to assess the progress to date of a partnership which would see the University provide agricultural land on the edge of its main campus to the Club for the development of a visionary and environmentally friendly new stadium and centre of sporting excellence.

Significant progress was made at that meeting, and the EFL have been updated regarding the positive steps that have been made and have welcomed the news.

Though details have to remain commercially confidential at this stage, we look forward to being able to share information once we are able to, and working with key stakeholders to make this important project a success for everyone.

The Club and the University do not expect to issue a further statement on the project until early in 2021, when we hope to be able to share further details on this exciting project with Coventry’s fans and the community.
