August 2013:

The city of Glendale is very pleased with the announcement from the National Hockey League (NHL) that IceArizona Acquisition Co., LLC has finalized its purchase of the team. The city is looking forward to working with IceArizona to continue the long-term presence and success of the Coyotes in Glendale.

City Statement: As we move forward, the city and team will focus on building momentum for this season by welcoming new and returning fans to Glendale's Sports and Entertainment District and supporting the many shops and restaurants that make up this important economic engine for the city. We want to thank the dedicated fans for their ongoing support of the team and the city of Glendale. As the anchor tenant for Arena, the Coyotes play more than 40 home games in our city that annually attract more than 500,000 fans and we are looking forward to many successful years ahead.

The arena in Glendale has been home to the Coyotes for the last 10 years and the new agreement allows for the team to continue playing in the city, keeps current arena revenues intact and provides new revenue for the city. As the anchor tenant for Arena, the Coyotes NHL schedule includes more than 40 home games that annually attract more than 500,000 fans.  Activity from these games generates sales tax revenue at the arena, as well as from numerous surrounding restaurants, hotels and retail shops. Since 2009, when the previous owner of the team unexpectedly filed for bankruptcy, the city has worked diligently with the NHL to find a solution that protects Glendale’s investment in the sports and entertainment district and keeps the team in our city. The vote by the Glendale City Council brings a resolution to this issue and is welcome news to Westgate businesses and hockey fans who attended the council meeting to voice their support for the decision.  The city looks forward to the 2013-2014 hockey season where the NHL’s Coyotes will continue to play in their home at Arena in Glendale.
