EUGENE, Ore. -- Bill Roe, USA Track and Field's acting chief executive, hinted on Tuesday that the Adidas Classic meet -- which has not drawn well the past few years -- might be moved from the Home Depot Center in Carson to another, unspecified stadium in southern California.

Michael Roth, a spokesman for AEG, which operates the Carson athletic complex, said today that no decision had been made for next year's meet. Adidas essentially bought the meet from AEG and has run it the past three years.

"We are continuing to talk with Adidas and we are hopeful of making a deal to return the meet to the Home Depot Center," Roth said.
