BLOOMINGTON – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, VenuWorks and the City of Bloomington have agreed to terminate the contract to manage Grossinger Motors Arena.
Management functions for the arena will move to City staff, and currently scheduled events are not affected.
City Manager Tim Gleason says the city is grateful for the years of dedicated service provided by VenuWorks, but the COVID-19 pandemic has limited events at the arena and other venues.
Gleason goes on to say they expect a seamless transition, and City personnel will be reaching out to all sponsors and tenants, and they appreciate their community partners and look forward to what the future holds for the arena.
The agreement is set to terminate on June 8, pending approval by the Bloomington City Council.
