This is what I think would be a fair deal for the club to return to Ricoh on short term deal. SISU pay ACL rent figure that matches Sixfields deal - which IIRC is about £175K SISU pay match day costs as per normal arrangements. SISU responsible for stadium pitch and football facilities maintenance, and share other stadium maintenance with ACL. ACL give CCFC 100% of all parking revenue, F&B sales and all football related sponsorship within the stadium bowl. If CCFC were to be promoted - then Season 2 would see rent increase to £300K - all other terms stay the same. Now although it may seem that ACL are giving a bit more here - we are told that they have a sustainable business, yet they don't receive any money from any of these sources as things currently stand. So there would be no loss to them - and they would gain money through rental income and sponsorship outside of the stadium bowl by a returning football team. ACL could also benefit by being able to secure a better deal for the stadium sponsorship which needs renewing next year. The revenue streams that SISU want are the non-matchday revenue that is associated with the stadium (and as it shares the same location as the club then it can be taken for FFP calculations) So they either use the short term deal to negotiate a position to buy out ACL in full at a fair price (meaning the council have to play ball) or use the time in the short term deal to build 'New Highfield Road' at which point they can generate their own. Thoughts?
