Madrid Arena won’t host the World Championship 2013 Group D

The meeting between the World Cup Organizing Committee and the Spanish Handball Federation that was held on Monday decided that Madrid Arena will not be open for the public as a host of the Group D of the World Championship 2013 until the current situation is resolved. This has prompted the City of Madrid to offer the Caja Magica (Magic Box) as an alternative for the hosting, but this one does not fulfill IHF standards. Another option is Palacio de los Deportes, but this hall has already had a lot of sports events bookings for January, so it is highly possible that no games will be played there as well.

This means that if no solution is find, another city might chosen as a host, but will also bring Madrid into disrepute for failing to accommodate and host such an important event.
