    Kicking around ideas

    By TERRY JONES -- Edmonton Sun

     They're seeking a solution.

     An emergency meeting between the Canadian Soccer Association and Edmonton 2001 has resulted in organizers of the World Championships in Athletics trying to see if they can solve the situation.

     "It was a positive meeting,'' said Jim Fleming of the Canadian Soccer Association.

     "They are looking at finding a solution to our problem.''

     The problem is that sign on Commonwealth Stadium which says "Home of Canada's National Soccer Team'' and construction going on inside the stadium would prevent two World Cup qualifying games being played this year.

     Due to the stadium fit-out problems, the long jump and triple jump pits, normally on the outside of the track, will be located inside the track here. The asphalt base of the track is now being layed. Within days, the asphalt for the triple jump and long jump pits are scheduled to be done.

     With the pits done now, an all-grass field fitting World Cup qualifying specs would be impossible.

     "They're going back to talk to their consultants to see if our needs can be met,'' said Gary Sampley of the Alberta Soccer Association.
