The City Of Coventry Stadium or the Ricoh Arena is a great arena for the Olympics, it was said at a press conference tonight in Coventry.

Coventry's stadium which won the Midlands bid to stage 12 matches after Aston Villa confirmed they were unable to host matches due to development of their stadium, was described as a good stadium with good transport links, good hotel stock and good relationships with local and regional councils.

FIFA's representative at the game also agreed that it is a goos venue which will also stage a bronze medal match..
