The Arizona team has been struggling with stadium issues.

Arizona, which used America West Arena with the NBA’s Phoenix Suns until 2003, later moved its home stadium to Gila River Arena in Glendale.

Team owner Alex Meruelo, who acquired Arizona in 2019, announced plans to build a new stadium in Arizona.

Then, the city of Glendale, which owns Gila River Arena, declared that it would no longer rent the stadium to Arizona after the 2021-2022 season. 슬롯사이트

Arizona, which had nowhere to go, used Tampe’s Mullet Arena as its temporary home stadium along with Arizona State University starting in the 2022-2023 season.

Since Mullitt Arena is a small stadium with a capacity of 5,000 seats, Arizona decided to build a new stadium in Tempe.

However, after the stadium construction plan was rejected in a referendum, the Meruelo team owner decided to sell the club.

If the Arizona club moves to Salt Lake City in Utah starting next season, it seems inevitable that the club will change its name. 토토사이트 추천
