Coventry City has announced plans for a new stadium to be built via a partnership with the University of Warwick.
The stadium would be built on land owned by the university and will become the new base for the Sky Blues.
Coventry says that there are also plans for a light rail system to be built and that the new stadium would be easy to access for local fans.
They will be working with local authorities, councils, and the West Midlands Combined Local Authority to ensure there is funding to build the light rail infrastructure.
“The club will own and be entirely responsible for the cost of the stadium and its operation; equally, the club will receive all stadium revenues it generates,” Coventry City and the University of Warwick said in a joint statement.
“Both the university and the club are committed to a visionary, environmentally friendly stadium in terms of materials, energy, noise, building and of course access.
“Whilst an exact site has yet to be agreed, its proximity would be on the agricultural field area of the University of Warwick land on its main campus at the southwest edge of Coventry.
“The Club and the University wanted to make people aware of this exciting new development as soon as possible and hope that in doing so, it will pave the way to many discussions needed with a range of partners to progress this project.”
Coventry currently play home games in Birmingham at St Andrew’s which has a capacity of 29,409.
The Sky Blues had previously played at Richoh Arena in Coventry however a dispute with the owners of the ground meant they had to find a different stadium to host their home games.
The club is currently in negotiations as to where it will play its home matches for the next season.
They were crowned as the champions of SkyBet League One last season and will play in the EFL Championship for the 2020-21 season.
Further information on the partnership and stadium will be available at a later date.
