Olympics

     RFK Stadium has been named to be one of five national arenas
scheduled to host Olympic soccer matches during the '96 Olympic
Games.  Nine games will be played in Washington, which joins
Orlando, Miami, Birmingham and Athens as the soccer venues
(Steven Goff, WASHINGTON POST, 10/27).  FIFA has approved the
five stadiums for Olympic soccer but noted that Legion Field in
Birmingham, AL, must convert to a grass field (Frank Dell'Apa,
BOSTON GLOBE, 10/27).
