Event Notes: 'Magic Weekend' Will Stay Put At Etihad Stadium
The Rugby Football League has confirmed its "Magic Weekend" will remain at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium in '13 and also stay there for '14. The RFL has yet to confirm the fixtures -- the full season's games are announced Monday -- but it is "widely expected that last year's derby game format will be replicated" (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, 11/14). ... The China Horse Fair 2012, which will run from Sunday to Tuesday, is "set to transform Beijing into a global marketplace for the professional horse sports and leisure industries, with more than 130 exhibitors from 16 countries and regions." Suppliers from European countries such as the Netherlands, France, Germany, the U.K., Ireland, Belgium and Switzerland will be on hand. They will be joined by other nations "at the forefront of global horse sports and leisure" including the U.S., Australia and Argentina (CHINA DAILY, 11/15).
