I don't think it's clear yet.
No it’s not. Just like it’s not clear why Wasps want indemnity for CCC, doesn’t stop 90% of this forum flying off the handle though ;)

Lots of people seeing what they want to see without evidence because it aligns with their prejudices. It doesn’t say free land, and you’d think they’d shout from the rooftops if it was.

Just like it doesn’t say we have a partnership and lots of people on here think we do.

All statements are written carefully, though apparently pointing out what was actually written and what people are assuming is a sign of bias and emotion and being a council plant ;)

Few snippets from the uni:

They have put together a team internally to oversee the project.

The exact details of the location are tbc but it will land owned by the uni that is currently agricultural land and falls under Warwick District Council.

The stadium will be serviced by the A46 relief road for which the exact routing is apparently yet to be confirmed (maybe why the exact location is also to be confirmed)

Public consultation expected to start in the autumn.

In your view, do you think the project is legit and the club are seriously about building this new stadium?

This from a local teacher on that story :-

“As a 'Coventry Kid' born and bred, I was delighted when Wasps came to the city. I was proud that our city had helped an ailing giant of English rugby. A shrewd move by the council too. As a rate-payer I didn't want to see the Ricoh fall into the hands of a hedge fund. Wasps quickly built links with the local schools and many children became fans.

WTF??? is he teaching your kids, Wasps are a hedge fund by a different name and have done exactly what the Council didn't want SISU to do................. put the Ricoh up as collateral for loans. Perhaps too many freebies and flags have addled his brain, as a "Cov kid" he should be feckin furious his money has been wasted. Most Wasps fans never even heard of, or knew where, the Ricoh was before they dropped in here. Plastics the lot of the deluded twats.

If you look on their forums, most of them really think we should have gone cap-in-hand to them begging to play in their/our stadium, whilst paying them for the privilege, and propping up the failing business model. They really are some of the cuntiest fuckers that go there, and feel they have the right to look down on CCFC/SISU as dirt. Well, they fucked up in Wycombe, so lets hope and pray it happens again soon.

Sounds really positive.

Public consultation will be fun. Can we get a template letter in support produced that doesn’t sound too ranty?

I saw a few comments asking why our fans think they should let us play there. How about the fact when they were given the stadium they themselves said it was the condition we could

Live in the area and the local councillors demanded a meeting with the uni as soon as the news broke. Thats what they've reported back. Doubt they're spinning it to make the club look good, one of them is Blundell who was straight on CWR being negative when the initial announcement was made.

South Leics...unfortunately
As a form of protest, could we get this on a billboard by the RICOH?

I have no idea what it’ll cost, but I’d contribute to the cause.
Great idea.... I’d contribute aswell

Not directly related to the stadium but is local to the proposed location and will impact infrastructure. The Secretary of State will not be calling in the Kings Hill development. Should increase the likelihood of the proposed Stoneleigh Road improvements as well as the Coventry South station going ahead.

Good info. Gives a general idea. Care to guess which plot of land is the future location?
