Cleveland next year and I don't believe they've done the selection process for the next cycle after that. Anyone have insight into candidate cities (other than St. Louis)? When do they make the selection for the next 5-year cycle?

I never thought it could happen given location and finances, but if they can make it work for hockey and basketball, they can absolutely make it work for wrestling. Ken Kreft, Timmy C. and Storniolo, work on that bid!

Lovely weather at this time of year. Though I understand about the long distance travel plans. I have been doing March cross country since I moved (here) from Chi-town.

Chi would be great!

 

I also noticed that Detroit has been getting some attention from basketball/March Madness. The city have a nice new arena in the works, an area revitalization going on with growing dining & entertainment options and is seated in a pretty easy-to-travel-to and wrestling-friendly part of the country. I don't know how Detroit compares with places like St. Louis or Chicago in terms of affordability but it might be an attractive option.

This is the 3rd thread like this in the past several months.

Does ANYBODY know when future sites will be announced ?

SHP, Pinnum, JB, anyone ?

Would love anywhere on/near the west coast. I'd even take Denver

The tourney was held in Tucson… Arizona's favorite child. I attended that tourney and worked it. What a blast. Some of my Chi-town buds were there. What a wk-end !

Lots of people are afraid of being in Detroit.

Fletch to answer your topic question. The powers that be may know the next few or so. Out long range -- I honestly think that they do not know just yet.

That's fairly ignorant. Downtown Detroit is great and much better than STL. Plenty of food options and the Detroit People Mover makes it easy to get around downtown. Both St. Louis and Cleveland have high violent crime rates, so I am not sure why people would be more afraid of Detroit.

Dang.  What is up with MO? St. Louis number 1 in violent crime and KC number 7. Detroit is 2 and Cleveland 9, btw.

Thanks for keeping us on topic. I was trying to get factual info., not asking people for their feelings on where they'd like it to be.

Los Angeles

Loved Philly, I'd go back there

Austin/Dallas/FW

Well maybe you are the ignorant one. In a recent national poll Detroit is considered one of the least desirable places to visit. There are a few nice places but many folks just don't want to be in Detroit. Too bad there are no D1 programs in Florida!

Chicago would be great.

 

I would love a good climate tournament, but honestly there aren't enough teams on the west coast or in the south to justify it.
