Britain Coventry's Collapse

Britain Coventry's Collapse
FILE - A Tuesday, July 24, 2012 photo from files showing a worker cleaning the seats at the city of Coventry stadium, in Coventry, England, ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Just a year ago Coventry was hosting Olympic football and being lauded by FIFA President Sepp Blatter. For Blatter, seeing top-level matches there was "a source of great joy and pride." Now the Ricoh Arena, just eight years old and with a 32,000 capacity, is a football stadium facing a future without football. Coventry, the 1987 FA Cup winners, plunged into the third tier as a bitter dispute between the hedge fund that owns the club and the Ricoh landlords escalated. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla, File)
