Phoenix Coyotes Sale Back On Track

Phoenix Business Journal by Mike Sunnucks, Senior Reporter
Date: Wednesday, August 8, 2012, 3:49pm MST

The perpetually on-again, off-again saga regarding the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes hockey team is on again.

Prospective Coyotes buyer Greg Jamison has brought investment money and partners back into the fold and could soon close on the purchase of the team from the National Hockey League. The sale would keep the team in Glendale at Jobing.com Arena.

Jamison’s group has been trying to buy the Coyotes since last year.

Two sources with knowledge of the three-year-old Coyotes ownership saga say Jamison now has the investors and partners in place to finally buy the Coyotes and a deal could close very soon.
Looks like hockey will remain in the Valley Of The Sun! :cheers:

Glendale's Jobing.com Arena changing its name
http://www.azcentral.com/story/news...-arena-name-change-gila-river-arena/14012707/
Glendale's sports arena could drop "Jobing.com" from its title in lieu of a new nine-year partnership between the Arizona Coyotes and Gila River Casinos that includes naming rights.

The deal hinges on approval from the Glendale City Council, which is set to meet Sept. 9. If passed, Jobing.com Arena will officially become Gila River Arena on Sept. 10.

The city of Glendale stands to earn $600,000 per year in naming rights, in addition to ticket surcharge fees and other revenue streams, for at least the next couple of years, said Anthony LeBlanc, Arizona Coyotes co-owner, president and CEO.

Rattlers to move to Glendale next season
http://www.foxsports.com/arizona/story/rattlers-to-move-to-glendale-next-season-081314
The two-time defending ArenaBowl champion Arizona Rattlers will move to newly minted Gila River Arena in Glendale next season, two sources familiar with the situation confirmed to FOX Sports Arizona.

The move is expected to be announced after the Rattlers compete in the their fourth straight ArenaBowl on Aug. 23 against the Cleveland Gladiators.

The Coyotes and Glendale officials declined comment on the news, but the move would mean at least nine additional dates filled at the arena that is slated to change its name from Jobing.com Arena on Sept. 10, pending approval by the Glendale City Council of a new naming rights deal announced Wednesday. The council is scheduled to vote on the naming rights deal Sept. 9, with approval expected.
This is good news for Coyotes ownership and the city of Glendale meeting revenue projections. Remember, the new owners have a five year out-clause if the team loses $50 million in that time frame. If anyone's interested here's a great read on the whole financial situation: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/showthread.php?t=1671765

Curious why they changed the name of the team from Phoenix to Arizona.
It was a condition of the new lease agreement. Glendale wants to take the Phoenix association away from the Coyotes since they are the primary backers of the team.





BTW-The primary logo and jersey will stay the same. They just changed the shoulder patch(from PHX to AZ) and team wordmark.

Coyotes Announce Gila River Arena Improvements
http://coyotes.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=729120&navid=DL|ARI|home
Arizona Coyotes Co-Owner, President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc announced today that IceArizona has invested over $3 million into soon to be named Gila River Arena to enhance the fan experience at the venue with improvements to concession stands, food and beverage options, existing clubs and a remodeled Fanatics team store. The Coyotes are also renovating the team’s dressing room and have added a new corporate office for staff.

“We are constantly striving to make the fan experience at Coyotes’ home games and other arena events the best it can possibly be,” said LeBlanc. “We care about our great fans and encourage them to provide us with feedback. We listened to them during the off-season and have addressed their main concerns. We’re confident that our fans will be thrilled with our new food and beverage options and the improvements we’ve made to the Coyotes Den.”

The Coyotes dressing room underwent a major improvement this summer. A players’ theater room for watching game video was added along with a renovated players’ lounge and new offices for the coaching staff. In June, the Coyotes also moved their entire corporate offices from Westgate Entertainment District to the Gila River Arena. The new offices are located at the north end of the service level and accommodate all of the organization’s hockey and business operations staff.

It's Official: Gila River Arena is New Home for Coyotes
http://coyotes.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=730024
The Coyotes were allowed to end their 10-year deal with Jobing.com as a condition of IceArizona's purchase of the team last summer. The Glendale City Council approved changing the name from Jobing.com Arena to Gila River Arena on Tuesday night by a vote of six to one.

This agreement is the first naming rights deal for Gila River Casinos and the first federally recognized Tribal naming rights deal with a sports venue that houses one of four major professional sports leagues in the country.

This new logo is to Minor League. In the 90's it would have been cool but now...

ASU Hockey: Sun Devils plan to play games at Gila River Arena next season
Powers said negotiations are ongoing for games to be played as soon as next season at Gila River Arena in Glendale, home of the NHL's Arizona Coyotes. Powers called the possibility of ASU playing rival Arizona at the Coyotes' rink "very likely."

The endgame for ASU hockey is a 4,000-6,000-seat arena in the East Valley, preferably on campus, Powers said. He said he hopes to have that done in time for ASU's third Division I season in 2017-18.

With 2015-16 games played at a combination of Oceanside and Gila River and 2017-18 ideally at the new facility, that leaves 2016-17, the first full season of NCAA scheduling. Powers said the Coyotes may continue to play host.

"I would expect most of, if not all of our games to be at a major arena," Powers said. "And that very likely could be Gila River."
