LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — AEG announced plans for a new round of upgrades for the STAPLES Center, the company's flagship arena in Los Angeles.
The upcoming $8 million investment includes the brand new DraftKings Fantasy Sports Bar & Lounge, upgrades to several of the concession stands on the main and upper concourse, and as part the company's renewed Founding Partner agreement with Delta, the suite levels have been named the Delta Suite Levels and full upgrades will take place in all 168 private suites next summer.
The DraftKings Fantasy Sports Bar & Lounge was a $1.7 million investment to upgrade the old TEAM LA Store space and opened on October 7th (LA Kings Opening Night), the DraftKings Fantasy Sports Bar & Lounge is open during every public event taking place at STAPLES Center.
“We could not be more excited about the upgrades that we made over the past few months and we cannot wait for all of the fans to experience them in the coming NBA and NHL seasons,” Lee Zeidman, President, STAPLES Center. “Every year it is our goal and we strive to keep STAPLES Center looking fresh, to have industry leading guest amenities and provide state of the art technology to our guests, tenants, promoters and special events.”
