SISU Capital Ltd, which has owned the Sky Blues since 2007, said it will drop its long-running legal case against Coventry City Council in return for their help to relocate to a purpose-built new home. Investment management company SISU also wants the owners of the Ricoh Arena, Premiership rugby club Wasps, to allow the Sky Blues to stay at the stadium until a new one is built. Coventry’s rent deal with Wasps expires in the summer and the English Football League has given the football club a deadline of April 2 to confirm where they will play next season. “SISU would much rather not have to continue with its legal challenge of the council’s decision,” read a club statement. “Any agreement to drop the litigation, however, would have to … [Read more...] about Coventry’s owner urges council to support plans for new stadium

GrabFood expansion: Risky or wise? First of all, it is obvious that the on-demand food delivery market in Vietnam has great potential. According to Euromonitor, the Vietnamese market has a growth rate of 11 per cent per year, and is expected to be worth $38 million by 2020. Besides some big players with a firm position in the market such as Foody, Now.vn, and Vietnammm, users also witnessed some well-known brands withdrawing from the food delivery market due to the huge competitive pressure such as Foodpanda or Lala. This proved that the food delivery market is not an easy market to operate in. As a newcomer among its rivals, GrabFood proved its strength with remarkable milestones on the journey to expand its domestic operation.

Robbie Jay Barratt - AMA/Getty Images Zack Steffen's move from Columbus Crew to Manchester City is reportedly complete, with the goalkeeper passing his medical and signing a contract on Thursday. According to Goal's Yves Galarcep City will pay $7.5 million (£6m) for his services, and the transfer fee could rise to $10 million, making him the most expensive MLS goalkeeper to date. The 23-year-old is unlikely to secure a work permit for the United Kingdom and will almost certainly be sent out on loan. Options include Girona in Spain and Nice in France, where former New York City FC manager Patrick Viera is now in charge. Steffen enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2018 and won the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award while also putting himself in pole position for the starting spot with the national team. He faces strong competition from Club Brugge's Ethan Horvath, who himself is in the middle of a breakout campaign, and the move to Europe should help Steffen's case. MLS' … [Read more...] about Manchester City Reportedly Complete Zack Steffen Transfer, Loan Expected

Industry and Chino Hills, one of the cities with jurisdiction over the near pristine, 2,500-acre Tres Hermanos Ranch, already have threatened to sue if Commerce moves forward with its bold venture. “It’s unbelievable,” said Konrad Bartlam, Chino Hills’ city manager. “If they think we wouldn’t sue them, as we have sued Industry, they’re completely crazy.” Industry, which has owned Tres Hermanos through its former redevelopment agency for decades, was approved to buy back the land on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County by a county oversight board last … [Read more...] about In a stunner, this new city is trying to muscle in to buy 2,500-acre Tres Hermanos Ranch
