    "The deal would not impact on any possible return for the men’s side to the city from Northampton"

    I think the Football League only have the power to help #bringCityhome

    except we now have wba U21s, CCFC ladies
    I hope if we do go back, that ACL are keeping the pitch in good condition, as they are clearly looking to share it around

    Fair play to the ladies. I would say it's about time that the ladies team are affiliated with the men's team but I wouldn't wish sisu on anyone.

    Have WBA U21's signed a contract yet? I thought it was just an option that both parties were exploring?

    Now, if the men can wear padded bras and run with their hands out in front of them we could all have what we want!

    Is there actually 'space' for CCFC now at the Ricoh even if we wanted to move back?

    CCFC Ladies playing there.
    WBA U21 playing there.
    ACL are also in the running for the 1 off events 'Race of champions' and rugby League Magic weekend.

    Why not? It was the only venue put forward in the UK and has/did stand as much chance as any. No idea how this went though.
    Lets assuming though ACL failed to get either of these 1 off's events.
    If CCFC did say lets sort a deal to play back at the Ricoh is 3 teams playing to much for the pitch?

    "Special congratulations go to Sweden and Friends Arena who narrowly beat Great Britain’s Ricoh Arena, Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados and Frankfurt’s Commerzbank Arena in the popular vote."


    Coventry hardly has the same appeal as the other contenders does it? Like I said would love it be there, but realistically every other option seems better to me (for the organisers of course).
