Listen up, people! We need more fans at Phoenix Coyotes games, and with inexpensive ticket prices and a great seat guaranteed, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be heading down to Jobing.com Arena to check out some professional hockey and support a cool sports team.
I went to a game for the first time since the team has been at Jobing.com Arena (I know, I’m horrible, I know), and it was a ton of fun! I was surprised to see that maybe only 20 percent of the stadium was full, and there was a good showing for the opposing team. I’ve never been in an arena setting that was so empty, and it made me sad, though the low attendance does make it easy for you to sit anywhere you want and have a great view.
We sat up high in the second level, which actually provides a cooler angle to watch the game from than if you’re viewing it from the lower level, because it’s easier to watch everything play out.
Besides the cool hockey action here in the desert, part of what made the game fun was the personal touch you get from the players through video interviews in-between plays. It was also fun to see opposing players in the penalty box be ribbed with colorful lights flashing on them, and a lucky fan gets to ride the Zamboni in-between periods. The organization definitely values the fans it has and rewards them with cool ways to get close to the players.
And how could you not like a team whose mascot is the closest thing to a cute dog that we have here in the state? I’ll definitely be going back to more Coyotes games, and I hope more people in the Valley give hockey a chance, as well.
