AEG Abandons Pursuit Of Downtown Los Angeles Stadium

Mar 9, 2015 8:49 PM

AEG has decided to abandon their plans to build a football stadium in downtown Los Angeles.

AEG invested at least $50 million and five years in their efforts to build a stadium.

“I think it’s fair to say we have turned our attention to proceeding with an alternative development,” AEG Vice Chairman Ted Fikre said.

The St. Louis Rams are seeking a stadium in Inglewood, while the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are working on a proposal in Carson.

Eric Grubman, NFL executive vice president and point man for the league on L.A., said the league has been "very interested" in the downtown site and has spent significant time with senior members of AEG. “We would always prefer to have an excellent site in the mix, but we recognize that it is not in our control.”

Raiders, Chargers Working Together On Stadium In Carson (Photo)

Feb 19, 2015 9:45 PM

The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are moving forward on a plan to build a $1.7 billion stadium in Carson, which is located south of Los Angeles.

The Chargers and Raiders will continue to seek public subsidies for new stadiums in their home markets, but they are developing a detailed proposal for a privately financed Los Angeles venue.

This latest high-stakes move was precipitated by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke, who announced in December his plan to build an 80,000-seat stadium on the land that used to be Hollywood Park.
