AEG Management CT, an arm of Anshutz Entertainment Group, has told the Capital Region Development Authority that its parent company is for sale.
AEG Management is one of three bidders competing for the contract to manage the XL Center in Hartford and the Stadium at Rentschler Field. A decision on who gets the contract is expected Thursday.
CRDA Chief Executive Michael Freimuth told me today that the authority’s staff has been assessing what it might mean for the venues.
“It’s a fair question to figure out what it might mean, if anything,” Freimuth said.
Freimuth declined comment tonight on which bidder is the frontrunner. In addition to AEG, Philadelphia-based Global Spectrum and a group led by the Bushnell are seeking to manage the venues.
