WVU FedEx Football Game Irks Morgantown Merchants

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Word that one of West Virginia's 2012 football games will be played at FedEx Field isn't sitting well with some Morgantown businesses that bank on Mountaineer fans.

On game days, Milan Puskar Stadium's 60,000 seats effectively double the city's population. Fans pack bars, restaurants and hotels.

Some merchants fear the James Madison matchup is the start of a trend that will cost the home town money.

They're meeting Monday with WVU to discuss it and to consider an economic-impact study.

Athletic Director Oliver Luck understands the concerns, but says the FedEx deal is good business, too: WVU will make $2.3 million -- $500,000 more than at home.

But Luck says it won't become an annual event. WVU probably won't play at neutral venues more than once every five years.
