Jobing.com Arena History
Originally opened in 2003, Jobing.com Arena has become one of the major draws in Glendale
in the 10 years of its existence, bringing together hockey and basketball fans for a steady string of nail-biters each and
every season. Hockey fans in Phoenix were anxiously awaiting the arrival of the NHL to the state and their passion for the
sport was renewed when ground first broke on the arena in 2002, and by the time the first hockey game was held, Arizonans
could not get into the venue quickly enough. Since that first event, plenty of amazing events have been held at the arena,
and there tends to be a little something for everybody on the concert calendar at Jobing.com Arena.
But even though
Jobing.com Arena tends to have plenty of big-time NHL games from season to season, it also tends to have many other incredible
events as well, from big-time concerts to speaking engagements and everything in between. When one of your favorite musicians
is taking the big concert to the next level with one of his/her signature tracks, you'll understand loud and clear why Jobing.com
Arena is one of the top places in Phoenix for live entertainment of all kinds.
Jobing.com Arena Events
of the biggest sporting events in Arizona take place at Jobing.com Arena, as it serves as the home of the Phoenix Coyote of
the National Hockey League – and the team's home games are always a raucous event. The arena is certainly best known
in sports as a hockey arena but it has also hosted several notable National Lacrosse League games when it was home to the
Arizona Sting, Professional Bull Riding's Built Ford Tough Series, high school volleyball, basketball, wrestling, and cheerleading
competitions, and much more.

Timberlake to The Eagles to Katy Perry and more, this is a concert calendar that always has plenty of options, making it much
more than just a place where you can find top-tier sporting events.

person to ever score at Jobing.com Arena was Scott Walker of the Predators?
In the first game, at the end of December
in 2003, forward Walker slipped the first goal in the arena's history into the back of the net.
When it comes to sports there is simply no reason to stay at home and watch the game when you could
