It has now been confirmed that there will be no wi-fi coverage available for the athletes, officials or anyone else attending the various athletics stadiums and venues in the upcoming WMA Track and Field Athletics Championships in Malaga, Spain.
Organisers have advised that these services do not exist at the venues and the cost of providing the services are beyond the resources of the LOC.
WMA President Stan Perkins in confirming these services would not be available expressed both frustration and disappointment at this situation. In pursuing the matter he had pointed out that the facilities to be used included a University track and a stadium that was used by the Malaga Football Club and assumed that both of these facilities would have a wi-fi service available. That was not the case and just to make the point local organisers also indicated that not even FC Barcelona and Madrid provided these services at their competition facilities!
