The Football Association have today released a statement to The Coventry Telegraph stating that they are not prepared to intervene with Coventry City’s groundshare with Northampton Town – 35 miles away from the city which bares the Club’s name.
This comes after they governing body of English Football, who’s slogan for theirt 150th anniversary in 2013 was ‘Supporting Football,’ earlier this week stated that they were to reject Premier League side, Hull City’s proposal to change their name to Hull Tigers from next season.
The statement which was released to The Coventry Telegraph read:
“This is a matter for The Football League who have regulations concerning relocations and ground sharing as well as concerning the finances of clubs within their jurisdiction.
“The current situation of the club is of concern and this includes the fall in attendances.
“We recognise the importance of clubs playing in their communities.”
Since playing their ‘home’ games at Sixfields, City have seen their average attendance in League One drop from the 10,000 mark at The Ricoh Arena last season to under 2,000 at their temporary home.
