Sale of AEG Halted, Longtime CEO Leaving — Glen Walker Reports
LOS ANGELES — Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called on Anschutz Entertainment Group on Thursday to “live up to its commitment” to bring an NFL team to the city through a downtown football stadium deal that would also expand the convention center.
“For the past three years, the City has expedited our process and lived up to our end of a deal to bring the NFL to Los Angeles and create a world-class convention center,” Villaraigosa said in a statement.
“Now that AEG is no longer for sale and they have indicated that bringing an NFL team to L.A. remains a priority, I call on AEG to live up to its commitment by immediately sitting down with the NFL to reach an agreement.”
