UK picks IMG to continue plans for arena

August 7, 2009 

The University of Kentucky announced Friday that it will work with IMG College and its affiliated group, International Stadia Group, to develop financing, design, construction and marketing plans for a new baseball stadium and renovations to Commonwealth Stadium.

Part of the agreement also calls for IMG and ISG to pitch ideas for a new downtown basketball arena in conjunction with the Lexington Center Corp.

No deadlines have been set, according to the university.

Last year, representatives from the firms presented a financing and construction plan to UK and Lexington Center officials, who oversee Rupp Arena.
