  1. Why doesn’t CCFC play at the Ricoh currently?
    The CCFC dose not play at the Ricoh Areana because the Wasps team dose not let them because there was lots of concertos already.
    Do you think it is fair that Wasps don’t allow CCFC to play at the Ricoh?
    I think it is fair the Wasps do not let the CCFC play at the stadium because they paid for it and it is there’s.

  2. CCFC do not play in Ricoh anymore because they did not have enough money to finish of the building and to create what was planned before they came. Because of that they had to leave the Ricoh and the London wasps rugby team bought the place and improved it.I don’t think that the wasps can not allow the CCFC team to play in Ricoh arena but they should be able to play there because Ricoh Arena is in there hometown and they bought it first and they Should at least be able to play at there hometown or at the place they used to play at and they could at least visit.

  3. Why doesn’t CCFC play at the Ricoh currently?
    They do not play in the Areana because the wasps they did not want them with them and committed that there was not enough space for them but there was.
    Do you think it is fair that Wasps don’t allow CCFC to play at the Ricoh?
    I think it is fair that the Wasps do not let the CCFC to play in the Ricoh Areana because they payed for it.

  4. 1.CCFC doesn’t play at the Ricoh because they didn’t have enough money to get it done.
    2. I think it is not fair because they paid the most for the Ricoh and Wasps had paid less. Also CCFC wanted to create the stadium not Wasps
    So it is not fair .

  5. 1 They do not play at Ricoh anymore because they had not got enough money to finish the build and the wasps took over the Ricoh and finished the build of because they had more money.
    2.Yes and no because the wasps finished of the Ricoh when the gas under ground was unstable and they built over that and it settled down.No because it wasn’t fair that CCFC had to go out of the Ricoh just because they went down in the World Cup and they couldn’t pay for the rent they could of just saved more money to finish the building.And they didn’t have to play or train in Birmingham

  6. 1. They don’t play currently because they couldn’t pay for the Ricoh and the Wasps could pay for it.
    2. No because CCFC had payed most to get it done but the Wasps payed less.

  7. They don’t play at the Ricoh because they did not have enough money to finish the Ricoh so the wasps bought it of them.

    No because they moved to Birmingham.
    No it is not fair because they started the building.

  8. I don’t think it is fair because it was built for ccfc.
    Another reason is wasps already played.

    It is fair because ccfc already played lots
    Another reason is ccfc need to let some other teams play

    But we think it is fair that they got kicked out.

  9. 1. Coventry isn’t playing at the Ricoh Arena because they didn’t have any money to complete the stadium; also they now play at S.t Andrew’s (Birmingham).
    2. I think it is not fair because Coventry was forced out of the stadium for the second and their owners SISU and then now the Wasps (rugby and netball team) play at the Ricoh Arena.

  10. CCFC don’t play at the Ricoh because the Coventry council own the Ricoh and CCFC didn’t pay to own the Ricoh.
    It’s not fair because CCFC designed the Ricoh and the Ricoh was unfinished so the council finished the Ricoh of

  11. CCFC doesn’t play at Ricoh because the didn’t have enought money to finish the building.
    It is unfair because CCFC designed the Ricoh and payed for a little bit of the Ricoh and because the wasps were from London not Coventry.

  12. CCFC doesn’t play at Ricoh because they can’t afford the build.
    It is not fair because wasps are from London and CCFC its was in Coventry.

  13. CCFC doesn’t play at Ricoh because they can’t afford the build.
    It is not fair because wasps are from London and CCFC its was in Coventry

  14. CCFC don’t play there no more because they moved to Birmingham City St. Andrews .
    Ricoh Area staudim is for the wasps now but they expect Coventry football club to come back in 2021.

  15. They don’t play at the Ricoh currently because the WASPS will not let the CCFC into the Ricoh, but the CCFC might come back in 2020.

    No, I think it is unfair because Coventry had the idea to make the Ricoh but a company called ‘Sisu’ bought it of them and won’t let CCFC play in the Ricoh.

  16. 1)Coventry City have been forced out of Coventry for a second time. The League One club will have to leave the Ricoh Arena again next season because of the legal battle between their owners, SISU, and Wasps, the rugby team that owns the ground.
    2)I think it is not fair that the wasps don’t allow CCFC to play at the Ricoh because CCFC started building it and they had the idea of making it and it is in Coventry which is their home.
