Highfield Road was the home ground for Coventry City until the club moved to the Ricoh Arena after the 2004-05 season. It was built in 1899 in the Hillfields district, close to the city centre, and staged its final game on 30 April 2005. It was demolished in January 2006. The site of the stadium is being regenerated to provide housing on the areas which were originally the car parks and stands. The area which was the playing surface will be relaid with grass so that the youth of the area can continue the tradition of playing football on that space.
