LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The company running the KFC Yum Center wants to bring the trials for the 2016 Olympics to Louisville.
Those internationally-covered swim meets are to be held in 2016. Currently they're held in Omaha, Nebraska. Their economic impact is estimated at $100 million.
Dennis Petrullo of AEG explains, "We would shut the arena down for seven weeks, build a pool on River Road and inside facility. Both would be donated to local college and high schools, it's an event we are working with the Sports Commission on."
AEG has signed a contract to manage the KFC Yum Center for ten years. It also said it wants to bring more shows there.
