All Leisure Ricoh Arena When the £113 million Ricoh Arena, the new home of Coventry City FC, was getting ready to open in August 2005 building programme overruns meant the facilities management team at All Leisure, part of Compass Group, had just 72 hours to bring in 135,000 pieces of loose and fixed items into the building and have everything ready to serve 20,000 fans and 2,500 corporate guests for the inaugural match. Not only that, but the gas supply was not connected, which meant food had to be cooked off-site and brought in. Despite this, the catering team rose to the occasion and most guests were unaware the on-site kitchens were unfinished. This spirit of partnership between All Leisure and Arena Coventry Ltd continued to characterise the business relationship as the venue has added conferences, exhibitions and even now a casino to its range of operations.
