After more than two years running the city-owned Gila River Arena, AEG was awarded a five-year extension to continue operating the home of the Arizona Coyotes.

The city and AEG agreed to an extension until June 30, 2026.

“I think this is something you don’t see a lot of in markets, to have a vote of confidence from a city like this,” Gila River Arena general manager Dale Adams said. “We strive for this arena to be a place where people want to come and see great events because this has been a hidden gem in Arizona for too long.”

Based in Los Angeles, AEG owns, operates or consults with more than 120 venues worldwide, including Staples Center in Los Angeles. AEG also developed L.A. Live, the sports and entertainment district adjacent to Staples Center, Microsoft Theater and the Los Angeles Convention Center. It also runs The O2, a 28-acre development in London that includes a 20,000-seat arena.
