According to Newsday, both MSG and Forest City Ratner will submit signed contracts to Nassau County Friday for the Nassau Coliseum development leading to a winner being chosen as soon as next week. If you recall, last month MSG and Forest City Ratner were named finalists for the project.
If you are unfamiliar with the plans, the highlights of Ratners include a 13,000 seat coliseum, minor league hockey, six Islander games per season, and 4-6 major boxing events managed by Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins.
Meanwhile, the highlights of MSG's plan include a 14,500 seat coliseum, an outdoor entertainment complex with restaurants, boxing events, and an Islanders themed bar.
