The Ricoh Arena is Coventry ’s official Bid Sponsor and is one of the city’s leading cultural gems – attracting more than 1.4 million visitors from varying backgrounds to the area every year.

The venue, which is the home of Wasps Rugby Club and Coventry City Football Club, is a leading destination for live entertainment such as sport and music, as well as conferences, exhibitions and meetings. To give some context, the venue hosted a record-breaking 777 events last year.

Over the past 18 months the Ricoh Arena has hosted a total of 19 music artists across four stages, attracting over 150,000 people to the venue.

This has included performances from Jess Glynne, Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna, Robbie Williams and a two-day MTV Crashes Coventry music festival that was broadcast in 162 countries across their TV network.
