The committee will focus specifically on grassroots promotions and ticket sales in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Connecticut. "I'm thrilled to have such a distinguished group of experts in the local wrestling community to lead our marketing efforts for the World Championships," said Dan Doctoroff, President, NYC2012. "This exceptional list of coaches and leaders in the wrestling community will definitely help take this event to the next level."
