Post What Happened to Philadelphia??!

Why is this tournament cancelled this year? Is it due to a lack of sponsorship?

It shouldn't be lacking of sponsorship. Its field last year was so incredibly strong. I think due to Chase shifting from New York to Munich, therefore few players wanted to play Philadelphia as it was on a different continent, so it is cancelled. Is that right?

Does any one know the real reason behind it?

They shortened the season and Philly was left out. <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/firey.gif" border="0">

They sent the Philly tournament to Nice, France, to be played in the spring. but now I believe it is moving somewhere else.

It is a big loss -- that tournament was only a half-hour from my house!! <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0">

Ok, so I was partly right <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Anyway, why has it shifted to France? Shouldn't it stay around in the US? And janie, sorry to hear about you losing that great tourny in your backyard. Maybe it'll come back if Chase is held in New York again next year.

No, the Munich contract is for at least 2 years. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Question

Hmm, why did they even shift it in the first place?

It was held in Nice this year but due to lack of sponsors it will move to Antwerp next week and will be played in February.
