Antofagasta, Chile Mayor Karen Rojo Denies Tournament Use Of Calvo & Bascuñán Stadium

One month before the start of the Int'l Rugby Board Junior World Rugby Trophy, which will feature an eight-team competition, the event's location has changed, according to Manuel Rojas Díaz of EMOL. Antofagasta, Chile Mayor Karen Rojo said no to the tournament taking place at the newly inaugurated Calvo & Bascuñán Stadium. As a result, the tournament will be held at the city's Las Almejas field, but the IRB said that "the synthetic turf is not suitable for the championship." Sources at the Chile Rugby Federation said, "It's an economic pain for the Federation, but more for rugby in Antofagasta" (EMOL, 4/29).
