    Which are the best seats for hockey? Many people like to be right at center ice, where they can be certain to see the action at both ends of the ice. Some people like to be right on the ice where they can pound on the glass and "express themselves" to the hockey players. Personally, those are not my favorite spots to watch the Coyotes; I like the corners, sections 105, 107, 116 or 118. That way I don't have to keep whipping my head back and forth, à la tennis match, to watch the action. I also prefer...MORE to be about 10 rows up from the ice for a better view of the other end.

    Gila River Arena also hosts several major concerts and events throughout the year. For those shows, there will be more seats, located in the center where the ice would normally be for hockey. Some shows will have an end stage, and some will have a center stage.

    Gila River Arena is located at Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Arizona, west of Phoenix. It is adjacent to University of Phoenix Stadium, where the Arizona Cardinals play NFL football. The arena is conveniently located off the Loop 101 Agua Fria Freeway. The arena is NOT accessible by Valley Metro Rail.
