World Cup 2007 organisers discuss terrorism


The organisers of next year’s cricket World Cup in the Caribbean revealed that terrorism was discussed at their board meeting here after the British security agencies uncovered a plot to blow up US-bound planes but hoped that the incident would not have any bearing on demand for tickets of showpiece event.

“We hope there will be no dramatic fall out (due to terrorism) across any tourism market but we certainly don’t expect it to impact demand for the Caribbean for the World Cup,” the World Cup 2007 Inc’s Chris Dehring said. He said the CWC 2007 expected the event to be a major draw and felt the threat posed by terrorist outfits would not hamper the fans’ spirit.

“There is a very special attachment to this event being held in the Caribbean which will overcome all those obstacles,” he said. Dehring said fans, who will come to watch the event would be “highly motivated” and the World Cup was still to far to get immediately affected by any terror plot. “We took that into consideration. It’s early days yet but we certainly discussed it at the board meeting here. We certainly will be looking at it from a managerial perspective,” he added.
