Glendale's Gila River Arena renamed Desert Diamond Arena

The former home of the Arizona Coyotes will get a new name this fall. Gila River Arena will now be known as Desert Diamond Arena.

The name change stems from a new partnership between Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment and ASM Global.

The entities say they are planning upgrades for the 18,000 seat facility. Glendale’s mayor calls the deal a win for the city and the West Valley.

Desert Diamond Casinos is owned by the Tohono O’odham Nation.
