Nikki Sinclaire MEP to meet with Football League TOMORROW

West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire will meet with Football League officials tomorrow to discuss the plight of Coventry City.

The meeting comes just 24 hours after Football League officials gave the green light for the Sky Blues to move to Northampton for potentially 5 seasons.

Nikki will meet with football league officials with her ad-van which displays the message “Keep CCFC IN COVENTRY”.

The We Demand a Referendum Now MEP said,

“The Football League has a motto that says ‘Real Football, Real Fans’. I am coming to the Football League to express the feelings of the real fans, who are dismayed by the plans to move the football club.

As an AFC Wimbledon fan, I know exactly what happens when clubs move away from their homes.

I want to be able to present the fans questions to this governing body and simply ask one question: WHY”.

She added, “We must do  everything we can to protect local clubs, and the fear is with a move away from their home City, support will dwindle and the club ill fade into the history of football.

Fans have no reassurances that football will return to Coventry City. This is simply wrong.”

The MEP for the West Midlands has been working with local clubs since becoming an MEP in 2009 and wrote to the Government in 2012 urging them to do more to prevent clubs falling into wrong hands.
