Gila River Arena

It's gone by a lot of different names during its lifespan, but this magnificent sports and entertainment arena in Glendale has quickly become one of the most popular local places to see big-name arena acts (Van Halen, anyone? How about the Who?) as well as hockey, lacrosse, and basketball games. Its state-of-the-art, $220 million facility includes a completely integrated video, scoring and big-screen advertising system, and seats as many as 19,000 people for concert events. A multitude of luxury suites play host to fans of the Arizona Coyotes, who call Gila River Arena their home. So do the Arizona state high school basketball, volleyball, wrestling and cheerleading tournaments, who compete in an annual mega-event called February Frenzy. Gila River Arena also boasts sponsorship of Ford's annual bull-riding event, The Built Ford Tough Series. Take that, Chase Field!
