Ricoh Arena - Home of Coventry City FC

Sam Johnson
The Ricoh Arena was built and opened in 2005. It is home to Championship side Coventry City FC. It has a capacity of 32,000 seats with a small away section on the corner of the South Stand going on to the west stand. It is situated on the Foleshill district in Coventry. Home to this stadium, a 6,000 square-metre exhibition hall, a hotel, a leisure club and a casino. The site is also home to a retail park containing one of the UK's largest Tesco Extra hypermarket. The clubs current ground was Highfield road. This stadium is also a venue for many concerts. The name comes from a sponsorship deal, rumoured to be worth £10 million over 10 years, with camera and photocopier manufacturer Ricoh, though during construction the stadium was variously referred to as the Jaguar Arena, Arena Coventry and Arena 2000. #arena #blue #ccfc #championship #city #club #concert #coventry #Foleshill #football #new #ricoh #samjohnson #sky #stadium #Tesco #venue
