This Saturday, the Sky Blue Trust are staging a further protest over the Football League’s approval for Coventry City Football Club to ground-share at Northampton Town for at least the next three seasons.
This protest follows from previous ones, including the unveiling of a ‘statue’ of SISU owner Joy Seppala next to the Jimmy Hill statue at the Ricoh Arena, a “SISU OUT” flag clearly displayed at Glastonbury; the UK’s largest music festival and protests outside SISU’s head offices, Sixfields and the Football League offices.
Over the last week both The Bristol City Supporter’s Trust and The Dons Trust have released statements condemning the move, and the Sky Blue Trust are urging Sky Blue fans to turn out in numbers this Saturday.
FULL SKY BLUE TRUST STATEMENT:
As you may by now be aware, the trust are putting the final preparations in place for a march and rally in Coventry this coming Saturday (July 20th).
The march will begin at 12.30pm from Gosford Green park, led by our very own ‘Lady Godiva’. We will make the journey into the city centre and will end at Broadgate, where we will hold a rally with speeches and live acts.
The key message and purpose is to show the football community that we will not lie down and watch as our club is torn away from the community it serves.
The message is simple ‘Keep Coventry in Coventry’.
We would urge everybody to attend, sky blue or not, football fan or not, the removal of our club from our city will have an impact on many.
