LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A construction official says the new
22,000-seat Louisville arena is on schedule to open Nov. 1.
Bill Hedge, an executive with M.A. Mortenson Co., told The
Courier-Journal that construction may actually be a little bit
ahead of schedule.
Louisville Arena Authority Chairman Jim Host says more than 90
percent of the suites have been leased.
Host says seven companies have made offers to be the naming
sponsor for the arena, but officials are waiting for the right
sponsor to come along. In the meantime, he says, it will just be
called the Louisville arena.
