March 2 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2100 GMT on Wednesday:

** Sports Authority Inc filed for Chapter 11 protection in the face of growing online competition, touching off a scramble to close weaker stores and find a buyer before the end of next month.

** CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd has offered concessions in a bid to secure EU antitrust approval for its proposed 10.3-billion-pound ($14.47 billion) bid for Telefonica's British mobile unit, the European Commission said.
