Problems Continue For RWC Organizers As Man City Only Agrees To Host One Game
Published April 4, 2013
FOOTBALL GROUNDS ONLY: In London, James Riach reported Premiership rugby club Leicester CEO Simon Cohenthe said that the decision to choose mainly football stadiums to host Rugby World Cup matches "was inevitably going to cause a major headache for organisers." Leicester's Welford Road "had been under consideration by the competition organisers." However, although RWCL was" keen to include the ground, it did not meet the required criteria." Instead, Leicester's King Power Stadium, where the Tigers have played Heineken Cup matches, "was added to the longlist of 17 venues that will be cut by five this month." Cohen: "It's a shame that both the criteria and financial considerations exclude a ground that we feel is the best club rugby stadium in the U.K." (GUARDIAN, 4/3).
