Gay games are on for Cleveland in 2014

In The Region:

The International Gay Games will be in Cleveland in 2014, but no one is talking about details of a court settlement that will help ensure that.

On the eve of a trial in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, Synergy Foundation settled its suit against the International Federation of Gay Games, the Cleveland Sports Commission and the city of Cleveland. Synergy had sued after it was forced out as the licensee for the Cleveland games amid claims of mismanagement.

International games federation spokesman Kelly Stevens says all parties have agreed not disclose the terms of the settlement. And though he says the dispute has not hurt the 2014 games, the ability to move on is important.

“Everybody’s pleased that this is over and we’re focused. Entirely all the focus now is Cleveland and Akron now and getting the world to come.” 

The Cleveland Special Events Corporation will now be the official host of the games, which are expected to draw 10,000 to 12,000 athletes.

The city of Cleveland has committed 700-thousand dollars to the games.
