Story: NIKE EVENTS CANCELLED IN HOUSTON THIS WEEKEND

Decision Made Before UIL Reinstatement

Prior to the UIL’s reinstatement of interscholastic events previously postponed by the Swine Flu outbreak, Nike was forced to cancel this weekend’s events in Houston. Previously scheduled was a Nike Combine for Saturday morning at the Berry Center and a Nike Football Training Camp at Rice Stadium on Saturday afternoon. ESPN Rise, which runs the events for Nike, is attempting to reschedule the Football Training Camp at Rice.

 
            ESPN Rise’s official statement as of Wednesday afternoon was as follows:
 
“ESPN RISE has decided to cancel its Nike Football Training Camp at Rice University scheduled for this Saturday, May 9 following UIL’s suspension of high school athletic activities in Texas until May 11.”

”ESPN RISE is working with Rice to reschedule this event; and we will announce it as soon as a new date is confirmed.”
