Well if they do drop out and the US Pan Am organization is interested in hosting, might I suggest Philadelphia, New Orleans or Austin? All 3 cities have a track and field stadium that's ready to use, with some minor renovations, if any needed, I'm sure. And all of them should have enough venues to easily accommodate the smaller capacities required for a Pan Am games.

Women's baseball and football have been dropped from the 2019 Pan Am Games program, so much for gender equality :p

And sport climbing will not be contested.

Baseball is not surprising as it will be hard enough to field a quality Peruvian mens national baseball team. But no womens football is astonishing.

It's just women's baseball that has been dropped. The event was added only in 2015 by Canada. Usually the host nation adds one sport that they want. Therefore it makes complete sense. The sports added by the host nations were not contested at the next games.

2007- Futsal

2011- Basque Pelota

2015 - Women's baseball

2019 - Surfing  (later added by the IOC to the 2020 program) and Basque pelota
