Club statement - Coventry City FC

Birmingham City and Coventry City have agreed a groundshare for the 2019/20 season.

The Sky Blues will play their home games at the St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium.

The move is necessary to ensure Coventry City fulfill their fixtures and therefore retain their status in the EFL.

Coventry's situation in regard the Ricoh Arena is a complex one and we have every sympathy for their plight, and that of their supporters.

Birmingham City has been in talks with Coventry City for a number of weeks about the groundshare and we always felt it important to try and help and support our neighbours, as part of the wider footballing family in this region, however we could.

We will work closely with Coventry City to ensure the matchday experience at the St. Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium is as enjoyable and welcoming as possible in the coming season.

Further details about the groundshare will be released in due course by the clubs.
