Petition Update

REPLY FROM MP HUGH ROBERTSON OFFICE part 1

Chad Roberts
Coventry, United Kingdom

Jun 21, 2013 — Dear Mr Roberts

Thank you for your email of 19 June, to the Rt Hon Hugh Robertson, regarding Coventry City FC, I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Minister.

We are sorry that the supporters of Coventry City FC have had to face such turmoil in off field dealings at their club over recent seasons, which, ultimately, will have an effect throughout the Club, including performances on the pitch.

Although, as I am sure you will understand, the Minister cannot comment on the specific points raised, the Government is concerned about instances of general financial mismanagement, and lack of transparency in ownership, and has been urging the football authorities to make changes to address these.
