After 34 consecutive years in the top flight of English football, Coventry were relegated to what is now the Coca Cola Championship in 2001. After running up heavy debts under its previous administration, the club has been in a period of transition and the 'green shoots' of recovery are now starting to appear. Moving to the Ricoh Arena is part of that revival and gates since moving from Highfield Road in 2005 have increased on average by 20 per cent.
