Foursquare Tips

  • The Coyotes Den (official team store) is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10a-5p and each game day.
  • Have you seen the stunt Rob Dyrdek pulled off when he kick-flipped the Chevy Sonic? Well guess what it's here! Jump in, take a pic and tweet it out with #ChevySLS!
  • Completed in 2003, the arena is home to the Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL. Since 2005 the arena has been host to "February Frenzy", a state high school mega event featuring different high school sports.
  • Check out the Coyotes Community Corner on game days to learn more about the team's charitable ventures and to bid on cool team items (like the team-signed bench pictured). All proceeds go to charity.
  • Fanatic Fact: Hockey Hall of Famer Mike Gartner, not only scored the first goal in Coyotes' history, he scored a hat trick in their first game.
  • I never really liked hockey until I went to a Coyotes game.
  • Whiteout!!!
  • The main entrance (Gate 4) is located on the North side of the arena facing Westgate. The arena is surrounded by restaurants and bars to accommodate any type of fan, from sushi to BBQ to an Irish pub.
  • On 10/7/2005, Howler became the official mascot of the Coyotes. His quest for the cool air led him to learn to skate like the wind. Now he patrols the ice and the arena, entertaining fans of all ages.
  • In addition to Coyotes hockey, this place hosts the Arizona state high school basketball, volleyball, wrestling and cheerleading tournaments in a mega-event called "February Frenzy." It's awesome.
  • During the post-season the Coyotes deck out the entire arena in white for their games, calling it a WhiteOut. Fans are encouraged to wear white as well!
  • He shots, he scores, hey goalie, you suck!
  • Hockey is life, the rest is just details.
  • I saw the Coyotes take on the Penguins on 11-05-2010, awesome game. It's a really good hockey stadium compared to many other stadiums.
  • Macho nachos
  • Seems like every seat is a great seat
  • Very nice arena. I was pleasantly surprised. All the staff & fans I interacted with were very friendly. One thing though, Coyotes don't howl.
  • My favorite stadium in Arizona because my favorite team plays there. Go Coyotes! Best game to watch in town and cheapest ticket.
  • Make sure to Howl during the goal song!
  • Listen for the crowd coyote howls during the game, lots of fun!
