LOS ANGELES (AP) — The president and CEO of AEG, the company that owns the LA Live entertainment complex and nearby Staples Center, says he’s still working on getting an NFL team to downtown Los Angeles.

Tim Leiweke spoke Thursday night at a fundraiser for a downtown Los Angeles street car project. He said if everything works out, the trolley would start running when the NFL returns to the city.

Leiweke says he’s committed to working with city officials and AEG’s Phillip Anshutz, to make a downtown stadium a reality.

He wouldn’t elaborate on his comments.

Warehouse magnate Ed Roski has permission to build an NFL stadium in Industry, about 15 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles, but has yet to secure a team.
