Coventry Arena train station to open – but football fans warned not to use it
Station beside the Ricoh arena, home to Coventry City and Wasps, will be kept closed for an hour after matches due to safety concerns
A new railway station serving Coventry City football club’s stadium is to finally open – with just one tiny flaw: trains will not be able to carry fans to and from matches.
The delayed Coventry Arena station, built beside the Ricoh arena, which is shared by City and rugby union premiership club Wasps, will remain closed for an hour after the final whistle. The train operator has advised the travelling public to stick to the roads on match days.
