AEG Facilities To Manage Gila River Arena

GLENDALE AZ (CelebrityAccess) — The City of Glendale has selected AEG Facilities to manage the Gila River Arena, home to the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes.

As part of the multi-year deal, AEG Facilities will provide support services, including event programming, purchasing, vendor venue services, advertising, marketing and event-day operations for the arena which is anchored by the Westgate Entertainment District and also adjacent to the University of Phoenix Stadium.

The 18,300-seat multi-purpose arena, formerly the Glendale/Jobing arena, first opened in 2003. The arena offers 3,075 club seats and 87 luxury suites (including two Luxury Tower Suites). It also features a completely integrated video, scoring and advertising system from Daktronics.

“We are looking forward to working with the City of Glendale to manage one of the most important arenas in the southwest,” said Chuck Steedman, Chief Operating Officer AEG Facilities. “Glendale is known as a premier destination for high-profile entertainment and sporting events and with the exceptional lines of sight for hockey along with a storied history of hosting some of music’s most important and popular artists, Gila River Arena provides the perfect setting for sports and entertainment alike.” – Staff Writers
