Glendale City Council Votes Unanimously to Approve Amended Lease Agreement with Arizona Coyotes
The Glendale City Council voted unanimously today to approve a two-year amended agreement with IceArizona, which owns the Arizona Coyotes and manages the Gila River Arena for the city. The 7-0 vote means new terms between the two organizations, including:

  • An annual payment of $6.5M from the city of Glendale to IceArizona, for the management of the arena. The previous city payment was $15M annually.
  • Revenues from all hockey related events to go to the team which allows them to offset the reduction in payment. This includes parking fees, ticket surcharges and earnings on concessions.
  • The revised agreement also eliminates the so-called ‘out clause’ allowing the city and team to engage in discussions about a potential long term agreement.

Today’s agreement also ends ongoing litigation between the two parties.
