About Coventry Building Society Arena

Coventry City FC’s former ground was Highfield Road, and the decision to move to a stadium with more capacity and better access was taken in 1997. It was opened in 2005 and was originally named the Ricoh stadium thanks to sponsorship by the Japanese camera manufacturer. It was renamed in 2021 when a 10-year sponsorship deal was struck with Coventry Building Society. The stadium has a seating capacity of 32,609.
