English: The Ricoh Arena, home to Coventry City F.C., is a stadium complex situated in the Rowleys Green district of the city of Coventry, England containing a 32,609 seater football stadium, a 6,000 square-metre exhibition hall, a hotel, a leisure club, and a casino. The site is also home to Arena Park Shopping Centre containing one of the largest Tesco Extra hypermarkets. The site was previously home to the Foleshill gasworks. It is named after its sponsor, Japanese company Ricoh who paid £10million deal for the naming rights over ten years. For the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, where stadium naming sponsorship is forbidden, the stadium was known as the City of Coventry Stadium.
