Published December 1, 1997
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) announced Sunday that Indianapolis has been awarded the 2002 FIBA World Championships for Men (USA Basketball). In Indianapolis, Bill Benner reports that the event was awarded to the city over Tokyo and a "consortium of German cities, including Berlin." Indianapolis Mayor Stephen Goldsmith called the announcement a "great victory" for his city and promised "a spectacular event," which will hope to draw 50- 75,000 visitors and have an "estimated economic impact exceeding $50 million" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 12/1).
