Far, FAR too big. That would be just bad.
I thought the same thing. I don't think their basketball arena is available though because the WNBA plays in the summer.
Hmmm.... WNBA vs National Olympic Swimming Trials...
Tough choice, ahah. :D[/quote]
WNBA every year is probably a better deal for the arena and area than Swim Trials once every four. Â Indy had nearly 130K total season attendance in 2012 for their team and they get that every summer. Â We get 160K once every 4 years slammed into 8 days. Â Trials carry more cache, but not near the butts in the seats and neighborhood traffic that a permeant tenant brings.
Anyways I think we miss out this time. Â Seems like a lot of the talk is about growing the event in different markets. Â Kind of surprised how midwest heavy the field is though, no west coast options.
