Arizona Coyotes looking to move to Seattle or Portland


A few days ago, the Arizona Coyotes' plan to build a new arena in Tempe fell through. It is believed the team is exploring options to move. According to the Glendale Star newspaper, representatives of the team toured arenas in Seattle and Portland within the past three months.

The destinations appear to have been the KeyArena in Seattle and the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

Currently, Seattle does not have a suitable arena, although the city is exploring a renovation of KeyArena, which was the old home of the NBA’s SuperSonics. There is also a bid to build an arena in the SoDo part of town. Portland does have a suitable arena, the Moda Center, which is home to the NBA’s Trail Blazers.

Publicly, the Coyotes organization says it will do everything it can do to stay in Arizona. Time is running out and a move seems inevitable to Seattle or Portland.
