MP set to lead mediation talks over future of Coventry City

An MP is set to play the role of mediator in an attempt to keep the Sky Blues playing in Coventry.

Chris Heaton-Harris, MP for Daventry, will get involved after Sports Minister Tracey Crouch looked for possible mediators to bring an end to the crisis, the Coventry Telegraph reports.

The dispute centres on the positions of Sisu, the club’s owners, as well Coventry City Council and Coventry Rugby Club.

“I was approached by Tracey Crouch and other interested local parties to act as a mediator over this dispute and have taken on the task,” Mr Heaton-Harris said.

“I have been working with the parties involved to find an agreeable arrangement which is sustainable in the long-term. As soon as I have anything of worth to report, I will do so.

“I know how important it is to both Sky Blues fans and the people of Coventry that a solution to this dispute is found allowing the long proud history of the club to continue,” he added.
