New Information on Potential Location for Coyotes' Arena Hilariously Falls Short

Published March 13, 2024 at 9:05 PM

The Arizona Coyotes have been facing questions about their future in the state for some time now. Today the picture got a little but murkier as new details about their new building plans have revealed some major flaws.

New Problems With Coyotes Plans For Arena In Arizona Revealed

The Arizona Coyotes originally had a three-year deal to share Arizona State University's Mullet Arena with the NCAA club. While the Coyotes are in the second year of that deal, they still have no long-term solution to their housing crisis. Today, new information came out regarding the team's plan to build a new home on 95 acres of land in the Phoenix metro area. Several problems emerged.

Interesting video on the land the Coyotes are bidding on to build their new arena. Some takeaways:

-No water or sewer to property
-Site is vulnerable to flooding
-Ready at earliest 2027, so 5 full seasons at Mullet Arena

Arizona Set TO Hold Hearing Regarding Land Auction For Potential Coyotes Home

Perhaps the biggest problem is the land auction itself. The team should hear from the state tomorrow as to whether or not the land auction will be approved. However, the team still has to actually win said auction before they can start building. With the team's ownership history, it seems possible that they could potentially cheap out and lose the auction. The Land itself has been valued at 68.5 million dollars.

The state is set to hold a hearing regarding the land auction tomorrow. Should it be approved, the auction would not be final until the end of May, so we should know more about the Coyotes' future in Arizona by then.

🚨 Arizona Coyotes arena dreams in trouble! No water, no sewer, and a flood risk threaten the Scottsdale project. Could this mean relocation to Salt Lake City? 👇

Hopefully the team is able to figure something out as fans and the NHL alike are starting to get tired of this saga.
