Cleveland_letterx390_0

The city of Cleveland has issued a letter to the Cleveland Synergy Foundation informing the group that the Federation of Gay Games is terminating Synergy's license agreement for Gay Games 2014 and halting all funding.

Outsports.com obtained the letter, which was sent July 7 from Tracey A. Nichols, director of the department of economic development for the city of Cleveland.

The letter reads: "On July 6, 2010, the Federation of Gay Games, Inc. (FGG) notified Synergy that FGG was exercising its right to terminate the license agreement.... In light of the notice given to Synergy by the FGG, the City hereby notifies Synergy that it is suspending any further payments to Synergy until the outstanding issues between the FGG and Synergy are resolved...."

This isn't the first stumbling block for Gay Games 2014, since it was announced the games would take place in Cleveland. Last week, bidders from Boston and Washington, D.C., suggested foul play was involved in Cleveland's selection.
