Signing of the Costa Rica Government Support for 2015 NACAC SeniorsSAN JOSE, Costa Rica, August 28, 2014 – The North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletics Association (NACAC) and the Government of Costa Rica recently signed an agreement for the staging of the NACAC Senior Track and Field Championships next year.

The Championships are scheduled for a newly built stadium in San Jose, Costa Rica from August 6-8, 2015.

The stadium, a 35,000-seat facility, was donated by the Government of China and has an indoor warm-up track, a hotel behind the stands and two giant video screens at each curve.

The winner of each event will advance to the IAAF World Championships in Athletics in Beijing, China with an A standard.

President of NACAC, Victor Lopez said that attempts will be made to get the top athletes of the region to compete in the Area Championship like they do in Europe, Africa and Asia. “The member federations have to make this event compulsory for all their athletes in order for us to have the big marketing and Television coverage,” he said.
