Financial Difficulty Could Force London Welsh Out Of Home Stadium
Published April 17, 2013
WELSH COULD LEAVE KASSAM STADIUM: In London, Robert Kitson reported the club said that "it could cease playing in Oxford next season." Exiles Chair Bleddyn Phillips said the club is no longer "obligated" to stay at the Kassam Stadium and admitted "the current rental charges would be 'prohibitive' and make it 'financially imprudent' to continue playing there." Welsh CEO Tony Copsey "has also confirmed he has stepped down" as the club looks to streamline its business (GUARDIAN, 4/15).
