Fuck a duck!
No mention of timescale but would think we are talking 3-4 years minimum given the planning process doesn’t appear to have started.

great news for the future but maybe points to a little longer at StAns/less favourable deal at Ricoh

On the Warwickshire side of the site so don’t have to get planning permission from the council.

I’m sure that’ll be the new thing people use as a stick to beat the club with though. “Well it’s not in Coventry is it” despite the fact it takes just as long to get from the city centre to the Ricoh as it does to get to Warwick Uni.

Theres more on this.

18k to 20k modular
It is hoped much of the funding would come from ‘enabling development’ such as retail or student accommodation
The planning authority would therefore by Warwick District Council, rather than Coventry.
It is understood the project’s partners are already examining potential sporting and academic link-ups, such as in sports science, hospitality, and with the Sky Blues in the Community programme.

The sky blue express continues to gather pace for its one way ticket back to the Premier League. Great news. Early days but at least it’s a start! Plus under the jurisdiction of Warwick Council so we shouldn’t have any interference from those tossers from the City Centre. 18/20k modular with potential to increase to 35k if required. Superb.

Cov Council will be involved as it is a major development on their border
