From August 1st Wimbledon will be reducing prize money to all of its attached trainers. Darren Kennedy, Wimbledon’s general manager told the trainers in a meeting last Friday that the stadium had been experiencing financial difficulties since late 2007 and that a series of cost cutting measures would have to be implemented to help stabilise the stadiums financial position.
Kennedy blames the lack of crowds for the financially horrendous state the stadium is currently experiencing.
The track’s long term future is now decidedly an area of concern for an industry that has recently had to endure the sinking of it’s flagship, Walthamstow Stadium.
