SELLS, Ariz. – The Tohono O’odham Nation congratulates the Arizona Coyotes on the announcement of their new arena naming rights deal. The Nation also welcomes Gila River to the community as the significant naming rights investment with the Coyotes will provide needed funding for the team. 

The Glendale City Council also approved a formal agreement that ensures the West Valley Resort will create thousands of new jobs and positive economic development in the community for decades to come. Also, the West Valley Resort is already prompting additional economic investment in the West Valley, as evidenced by the Coyote’s announcement, and reports of renewed interest in development projects in the surrounding area.

The continued success of the Coyotes is important as it is located one-mile from the West Valley Resort and the two venues will share a natural entertainment synergy. With more than 3,000 employees, and drawing millions of new visitors into the area, the West Valley Resort looks forward to dramatically expanding the Coyote’s fan base.

The Tohono O’odham Nation is a federally-recognized Indian tribe, with existing reservation lands in Maricopa County, Pinal County, and Pima County, Arizona. The West Valley Resort will be located at 95th and Northern avenues and will generate thousands of new jobs and more than $300 million in annual economic impact. For more information, visit
