Glendale Arena opened its doors on December 26, 2003. The arena was built as a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility and anchors the 223-acre, $1 billion development Westgate City Center - the "crown jewel" of sports and entertainment complexes. On October 25, 2006, Jobing.com purchased the naming rights to the building and Glendale Arena was renamed Jobing.com Arena.
Owned by the City of Glendale and managed by Global Spectrum, Jobing.com Arena is home to the National Hockey League's Phoenix Coyotes. Since opening, the arena has established itself as one of the premiere sports and entertainment venues in the country and has earned its place of distinction as "Arizona's must play."
Jobing.com Arena received the prestigious Pollstar Best New Concert Venue of the Year Award in 2004, and has been recognized by azcentral as the Best Sporting Venue and Best Major Concert Venue in the Valley.
With two separate concourses on two seating levels, Jobing.com Arena provides guests with non-restricted views of the action. The Arena also features an intimate seating bowl with all the modern amenities.
There are 87 Luxury Suites at Jobing.com Arena, which includes two Luxury Tower Suites and 12 Luxury Party Suites that can accommodate large groups of up to 50 people. In addition, the Gila River Casinos Club (located on the Club Suites level) consists of approximately 400 upscale seats with unique club and dining opportunities. The Rinkside Club (located directly behind the Coyotes and visiting team player benches) offers guests an up close and personal experience combined with first-class hospitality services.
