Mullett Arena is the new home to the NHL's Arizona Coyotes (at least for a few years). For fans who have a history of attending other NHL games, the experience at Mullett Arena is going to be a lot different.
The NHL's Smallest Venue
Mullett Arena is the smallest venue hosting a major professional sports team in the United States. While the Coyotes old stadium had space for nearly 20,000 guests, their new home has room for 5,000.
What does the smaller capacity mean for fans? First and foremost, it means that nearly every seat is going to be great. Every seat in the lower bowl is within 20 rows of the ice.
The smaller venue will also foster a more collegial atmosphere. After all, this is a college hockey stadium they'll be playing in. The Den - a laid-back area of bench seating behind the east net - is expected to be the unofficial "diehard fan" area. Normally these fans sit in the upper deck, but at Mullett Arena they'll be right on top of the ice.
The following areas at Mullett Arena have space for guests needing accessible seating:
- Top of club section 101
- Top of sections 105 and 114
- The area directly behind the glass in sections 106 and 107
While the arena will serve as the long-term home for Arizona State hockey, there are a few premium seating areas that NHL fans have grown accustomed to. This includes:
