The overnight news in the Spanish press that Malaga has failed to attract government funding might have thrown a lot of pundits off the scent. That city is out – but not that country.
A reliable source confirms that the front-runner for AC37 venue is Barcelona.
Meanwhile, there’s a lobby group formed in New Zealand trying to pressure the Government into upping their financial support so that the Cup can be defended on home waters. One of the “big names” who’s recorded a statement for “#KeepThe CupInNew Zealand” is none other than Sir Michael Fay, the arsehole who first destroyed the Cup with his giant rule-breaker in San Diego back in the late ‘80s.
Those damn Kiwis!
