ManU's Old Trafford Scraped From 2015 Rugby World Cup Stadium Shortlist
Published April 3, 2013
FINDING A HOME: In London, Ashling O'Connor reported the choice of venues for the World Cup "has been beset by problems and delays." After securing more time from the IRB to accommodate the Olympic Stadium, tournament organiszers "promise that the match schedule will be finalised before the end of the month." Although West Ham United is confirmed as the winter tenants of the Olympic Stadium from the '16-17 season, it is "still unclear if it would be possible to halt substantial conversion work to stage World Cup games." Also, there is "uncertainty over the use of Premier League grounds because the fixture list will not be finalised until July 4, 2015, meaning, the Premier League can only offer likely dates." The situation is "complicated further by the police, who could veto dates" (LONDON TIMES, 4/3).
