To Lose T&F World Cup
The ‘06 World Cup of track and field will not be held at The Home Depot Center in Carson as originally planned, according to Dick Patrick of USA TODAY. AEG and the IAAF have not been able to agree on a contract because AEG is being asked to “come up with about $1[M] to cover the taxes on the prize money” of about $3M. Brussels and Berlin are now “considered the favorites to receive the World Cup bid.” Patrick notes that the event was awarded to the U.S. “with great fanfare two years ago” as the IAAF “wanted the event to rejuvenate interest in the sport” (USA TODAY, 10/8).
