    Yeah would make sense, renaming it. That or another big name concert.

    Jaguar Land Rover Arena to finally be unveiled is my blatantly obvious prediction

    If it is renamed JLR Arena, I bet many will take a while calling it that. I think it will always be known as the Ricoh to me.

    That's a terrible name for a stadium.

    The Gasworks would have been much better.

    I still know the Reebok stadium is in Bolton and the McAlpine is in Huddersfield. No idea what they're called now though, I think it's a beer at one of them.

    It will be another concert announcement, "More top acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks by the Coventry venue's management" - this was after the Rihanna announcement...Stone Roses?

    There's got to be a serious chance of it being JLR after the huge Investment into this City announced yesterday.
    Coventry is getting back into Car manufacturing.

    JLR stadium!

    BTW is it the council that is subsidising the MTV tickets?

    The deal is for 3 years. I see they are keeping the spend details under wraps.

    When is Simon making a FOI request to get the numbers. :whistle:
