|What's The Ricoh Arena Like?|
|In what seems a bizarre
script, Coventry City will be ground sharing the
Sixfields Stadium with Northampton Town FC after the
Sky Blues left their former Ricoh Arena home.
Sixfields is 34 miles away from the Ricoh, so this
will be almost a 70 miles round trip each 'home'
game for the Cov fans.
The Club have announced that they are close to securing a site for a new stadium to be built near Coventry. Although they have not announced where it will be, it is believed to be the former site of Hawkesbury Golf Course near Bayton Road in Exhall, which falls under the area of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council. This site is close to Junction 3 of the M6 and ironically is only a five minute drive away from the Ricoh Arena. However, whether this will ever materialise remains to be seen.
For practical information about Sixfields, directions, parking, pubs etc.. then please visit the
Sixfields Stadium page of the Guide.
