Suites & Arena Overview
Gila River Arena, located in Glendale, Arizona, is home to the Arizona Coyotes (formerly the Phoenix Coyotes) of the National Hockey League (NHL). When not in use by the Coyotes, the building frequently serves as a concert venue and host to family shows. Previously known as the Jobing.com Arena, the Gila River Arena anchors the City of Glendale's popular Westgate Entertainment District.
The facility is owned by the City of Glendale and managed by Global Spectrum.
The Gila River Indian Community and Gila River Casino are the title sponsors with venue naming rights, marking the first time a federally recognized Native American Tribe has secured a stadium naming rights deal with a team from one of the four major professional sports leagues.
Notable events hosted at Gila River Arena include numerous Professional Bull Riding (PBR) tour stops, Street League Skateboarding events, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Sesame Street Live, Harlem Globetrotters games and Cirque du Soleil. Music performers like U2, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber have also graced the Gila River Arena performance stage.

Gila River Arena features two luxury Tower Suites – the POA Tower and the Heineken Tower – and twelve well-appointed Party Suites that can accommodate groups of up to 50 people. These spaces are typically better suited to large groups and are often available for a single game (as opposed to full season leases). In addition to the listings publicly displayed on the SuiteHop Marketplace, we are often able to help clients secure both private and Party Suites through our offline network.
Private Rentals & Suite Ticket Prices
Premium full suite rentals for popular games and special events typically fall within the range of $3,500 to $4,500 depending on the size and location of the luxury box. The same suites for lower demand games and events can often be reserved for half the price. Individual suite tickets are comparably priced to seats in the Club sections or other desirable areas at Gila River Arena.
Party Suite rentals begin at $2,200 per game and increase depending upon the day of the event and/or Arizona Coyotes opponent (facing a division or conference rival, etc.). Food and beverage may be purchased for an additional charge from an extensive menu provided by Levy Restaurants. Guests also have access to in-suite concierges and wait staff.
Annual Suite Leases
Full-season leases are available directly from Gila River Arena and the Arizona Coyotes, ranging from $80,000 to $150,000 per year. Lease terms are offered for three and five year commitments. Suite owners with annual leases are allowed to buy additional non-suite tickets, as well as 4 to 8 Standing Room Only (SRO) suite tickets per game.
