Coventry City Football Club is the perfect venue for doing business in a relaxed and professional atmosphere. I am very excited to hear that they will be introducing some educational material for business which means business will get the tax deduction for cost.”  Jodie McDermott, Managing Director of the Midlands Office of Cox Costello & Horne

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were made to feel very welcome, the catering was excellent and it was good to meet some old and new business acquaintances.”  Roger Parfitt, Handelsbanken Coventry Branch
