GOODWILL GAMES TO CHANGE FORMAT ON SUMMER GAMES
Published January 9, 1995
Turner Sports President Harvey Schiller has been in discussions about how to make the Goodwill Games financially viable. Although the games have been a "perennially money- losing" event, organizers are committed to holding the games and are exploring a "winter edition" of the multi-sport contest. Schiller is expected to make an announcement on Friday regarding format changes, and "among the suggestions are cutting back the number of sports, trimming the 16-day schedule or including off days in that time period" (Joe Drape, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/8).
