Welcome to CV One based at the Ricoh Arena in Foleshill, we are a not-for-profit company which promotes areas within Coventry and Warwickshire , operating an information bureau off the main atrium walkway at the Ricoh Arena.
Coventry City moved to the state-of-the-art Ricoh Arena in August 2005 and as well as incorporating a 32,000 all-seater stadium, there are many other facilities that fans never normally get to see.
CV ONE allows people to come along to the home of the Sky Blues to see the sacred dressing room (where you can imagine what it would be like to be part of a team talk) as well as other areas like the Media Suite, where post-match press conferences are held.
The office showcases the facilities and attractions that are available across the region. It also provides a wealth of information for visitors to the multi-purpose complex such as public transport timetables and details of where to stay and visit in the region.
The centre also sells 'Coventry' gifts such as Jaguar car models and pictures of the 1,000 year old mediaeval city as well as providing a service to book theatre tickets.
The facility, which was part funded by a grant from Advantage West Midlands’ Capital Project Fund, is operated whenever major events are held at the Ricoh Arena.
Public tours are available Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Group tours are by prior arrangement, a maximum of 15 people.
