Sexstone: No Tesco = No World CupSeptember 10, 2009
Colin Sexstone told me today explicitly that no new stadium meant no world cup. He has previously said that no Tesco would mean no stadium and Bristol City would stay where they were. So, no Tesco = no World Cup.
This is the first time (to my knowledge) someone involved at the top of the bid has made this link explicitly.
Edit: If there is anyone who still doubts this, despite the mountain of evidence to contrary, here’s the council’s deputy leader Simon Cook:
Come on – surely no-one can now say the two are not explicitly linked? The bid team haven’t wanted to make this link outright until now, for whatever reason, but surely it is now plain to see?
