“Nice Spot for Trade Shows”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Ricoh Arena is a Nice Spot for Trade Shows although the city of Coventry itself is not very appealing. Too depressive for me. Too dark and not welcoming despite the people who are quite nice.

“The white skyblue elephant!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Been going here since it opened every other week to watch my beloved football team, since Aug 2013 our owners have upped sticks and we've been sent to No'ton. Not good.
It is a real shame, as the stadium is second to none, it is a great Arena but without a regular football what place does it have? I hope the off field problems are sorted and we can return here, but in the meantime i will continue to travel to No'ton. PUSB.

There is mroe than enough here to keep anyone amused, a casino, bars, restaurant and a hotel. It even has an exhibition hall bolted on the side.

“Great arena, fantastic casino area”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Went here to watch a football match and then went onto the casino area for a drink afterwards. The arena is fantastic, sadly the football did not match and since visiting the team have now moved elsewhere. This stadium deserves a better team!
The casino area is fantastic, the best I have seen outside of Vegas. it was really busy after the match.
