This center, formerly called Glendale Arena, has been home to the NHL's Arizona Coyotes since it was opened in 2003. The Coyotes had previously played their games at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix, but that venue was not designed with ice hockey in mind as it just barely fits a regulation rink on its floor. The Gila River Arena is a part of the Westgate development, adjacent to the State Farm Stadium where the Arizona Cardinals play. For hockey games, seating capacity is 17,125. That number increases to 18,300 for basketball games and approximately 19,000 for concerts (with floor seating). In addition to hosting professional NHL match-ups, it hosts Arizona State Sun Devils men's ice hockey games. In the past, it's also held lacrosse and arena football games.
