The present situation arose after club owners SISU and Wasps RFC were unable to reach an agreement which means The Sky Blues have been forced into ground sharing for the second time.

SISU-OUT is a common phrase used by Coventry City fans because they are fed up with SISU’s cost-cutting measures. They have gone on protests against owners many times.

The infamous protester includes hundreds of plastic toy pigs, Tennis in another incident thrown, on the pitch, whistling, banners, Anti-SISU slogans, and Pitch Invasions.
