SKY Blues fans will be able to quiz key players in the on-going Ricoh Arena saga at a large-scale fan’s forum being staged at the Parish Centre of Christ the King in Coundon later this month.

Non-executive director Mark Labovitch has confirmed a forum will take place on June 27 (7pm) where the club will be able to answer questions from fans just two weeks after the eagerly anticipated judicial review case.

Over the past month club directors and Sisu boss Joy Seppala have been meeting groups of fans with the most recent taking place at Christ the King last Wednesday.

Labovitch has openly invited key members of the council, including leader Ann Lucas, ACL directors and former board members Joe Elliot and Hary Hoffman to attend in order to get all the correct information out in the open.

“We have been calling for a full, open investigation for over a year.” said Labovitvh in a statement released to the Observer.

“We don’t think the Ricoh Arena dispute can be properly resolved while so many of the key facts are kept covered up from fans.

“We’re not sure that the parliamentary inquiry (which we supported) will ever happen and the legal proceedings won’t in themselves bring about a solution – however,they are revealing a lot of the truth about what’s been going on.

“We hope that everyone involved in the dispute will attend. That way everyone can give their side of the story and answer questions.”

Tickets to attend are free and can obtained from the centre’s bar at 14 Westhill Road, Coundon, Coventry CV6 2AA.
