Better known as the Ricoh Arena, the venue will play host to 12 matches in the football tournament during the Olympics. With its central location in England providing convenience for spectators and athletes alike, the stadium has been chosen to host matches during the men's and women's competitions, including the women's bronze-medal clash. It was built in 2005 and is the home of Coventry City FC, while it has also hosted music concerts and has been picked as one of the venues for the 2015 Rugby Union World Cup.
