City council may consider contributing funding for the Davis Cup.
Winnipeg is competing against Calgary and Vancouver in a bid to host the event next February where Canadian Milos Raonic will take on Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
Next week, council's executive policy committee will consider a report regarding funding for the Davis Cup. A spokeswoman from Mayor Sam Katz's office said the tournament is a "marquee event" and EPC will discuss whether the city will be able to participate.
Last month, True North Sports & Entertainment and Tennis Manitoba launched a ticket sale deposit and social media campaign in support of Winnipeg's bid to host the event. They received close to 2,400 $25 ticket deposits from sports fans.
A decision on the successful bid is expected by the end of next week.
