    Easy to find out if it’s true if as Fisher has claimed it is due to be announced soon then the local Rugby authority and Warwickshire constabulary will have been consulted atleast we can find that out Monday on foi.
    I’ll comment on what I think about when I know if it’s true or not.

    The Clifton Inn is the nearest. Used to be full of council tenants from the high rise flats at Biart Place
    Butler Leap also close. That's more family orientated.
    All the pubs in the town centre are walkable to the ground, unless you're pissed.

    No way Butlin Road could be extended to 9,000. The only real space for a decent size temporary stand is behind one of the goals but that would mean sacrificing a 3G pitch which surely wouldn't happen.

    9000 fans through one entrence at a stadium that only has one road going to it. That will be interesting. Wouldn’t put it past rugby town owners though.

    Parking around Rugby FC would be very difficult. Best to park in Clifton village and walk up the hill for 15 mins. They won't know what's hit them.

    Anyway, with respect to the OP, if Fisher had really said this today at the game to a " bunch of people " it would have spread like wildfire and be all over social media by now. I smell BS.

    It will be better than the Ricoh since it will be packed with supporters close to the pitch. Opposing teams will hate coming there.
    Since it will be a sell-out every game, the ticket prices can stay the same or go up since supply will be very limited.
    Good for the club, not so good for the fans.

    Shame you've got to move out, but hey ho, we're bigger than you, so, tough.

    How do you feel about it? Any chance Rugby fans would follow the City too?

    Tim Fisher is the man who, nearly 3 weeks ago, told talksport that there would be some good news coming to Coventry fans within a fortnight and that the EFL had informed him that we had to play within 6 miles of the centre of Coventry .

    No. The Strachan academy is based on Rugby Town Juniors site on Kilsby Lane. Rugby Town Juniors and Rugby Town are 2 separate entities also. Hate each other.

    Rugby is essentially a CCFC town. There are a fair number of Leicester fans here but I remember when both teams were in the Premier league Cov had the biggest following.

    Shut down hasn’t it? Part of the redevelopment of the flats along with the old co-op.

    I would think that the temporary stands need planing permission also.

    We won’t go easy!
    Personally think it’s a great opportunity.
    You'll definitely get a good turn out from Rugby people. I take it you’ll be reciprocal with that?

    I hope that carpet shop next door keeps going. I've had some good offcuts from there.
