Still a ways to go but... Coyotes Announce Plans for New East Valley Arena >>The Arizona Coyotes announced today that they have entered into an exclusive negotiation agreement with Catellus Development Corporation, master developer for the Arizona State University Athletic Facilities District, to work towards the finalization of a new arena and commercial development project within the district along Tempe Town Lake. The site of the proposed new arena is the Northwest corner of E. Rio Salado Parkway and South McClintock Drive. This marks the beginning of a detailed process to secure a new home for the Arizona Coyotes. The plan includes the construction of a 16,000-plus seat NHL arena for the Coyotes with an attached additional 4,000 seat multi-sport arena. The second arena will be utilized by Sun Devils Athletics, Coyotes practices, youth hockey practices and games and community events. These two new additional sheets of ice will continue to help grow the sport at the grass-roots level. In the future, a new hotel and other related amenities will be finalized as part of the second phase of the project<<.
