Even though a “For Sale” has been placed in front of the AEG headquarters, a new sign can now be stuck in the ground near Staples Center.
AEG spokesman Michael Roth tells PFT that the L.A. City Council approved all eight measures relating to the construction of Farmers Field, the proposed NFL stadium that already has a naming-rights deal.
This means that the process will now move forward, with a window opening for the filing and complete resolution of any lawsuits challenging the project. By March 2013, the case(s) will be over and, presumably, the venue will be shovel ready.
The only thing left will be attracting a team. Or two.
The leading candidate is the Chargers. Other possibilities include the Raiders and the Bills. Some say that the Jaguars are still a candidate, but that seems to be a long shot at best.
