RICOH ARENA TO HOST CHARITY EVENT

The Ricoh Arena, in Coventry, will host a charity football match on Sunday 4th May, raising funds for UK military charity Help for Heroes.

The event, named Football for Heroes, will see the Defence Medical Services tackle a world-famous legends XI consisting of former Premier League and international stars.

This news follows last week's unveiling of new tenants at the stadium, FootballCV.

The full-time residential academy, based in Corby, Northamptonshire, are due to play eight home games at the arena in the 2014/15 season.

They will be the first occupants of the 32,609-seater stadium since Coventry City vacated and moved 35 miles away to Northampton Town in the summer of 2013.
