As much as the bulk of Canada would like to see the Coyotes take up permanent residence north of the border, the Yotes are locked into life in Glendale. Well, at least until the next round of ridiculous city council drama bubbles up. Gila River Arena has served as the Coyotes home base since 2003 and features the club as the building’s star attraction. 

Arizona Coyotes Stadium

The Arizona Coyotes settled into what’s now known as the Gila River Arena back in 2003 after a previous life in Phoenix. (Oddly enough, the franchise’s name change wouldn’t arrive until about a decade later.) Coyotes home games are largely known for their dismal attendance even with a small pack of rabid fans fighting tooth and nail to stop the team from moving to greener (or at least fuller) pastures. Arizona were abysmal in 2014-15 with wins in short supply, but the team performed marginally better on the road with 13 wins away from Gila River Arena versus 11 Ws at home. When the wins are in such short supply, it’s not too impressive of a margin to analyze. The franchise hasn’t seen too much in the way of glory days lately, but you can’t talk about the Glendale era without shining a spotlight on an impressive 2011-12 Stanley Cup Playoff run that extended into the third round. In front of a crowd that adopted the old Jets “Whiteout” gimmick, the Coyotes scored playoff wins against Chicago and Nashville before getting bounced by the eventual Stanley Cup champs from Los Angeles. Can the Coyotes return to that level of success? Sure. Will it happen in Glendale? It’s hard to say.
