A group trying to buy the Phoenix Coyotes has partnered with the firm that owns the Philadelphia Flyers to promote and operate Jobing.com Arena.
Renaissance Sports & Entertainment, which has an agreement to buy the Coyotes from the NHL, announced Tuesday that it will work with Global Spectrum to help manage the Glendale arena.
The announcement came hours before the Glendale City Council was to vote on a 15-year, $225 million lease agreement with RSE for Jobing.com Arena.
Global Spectrum manages 113 facilities worldwide, including the Wells Fargo Center, where the Flyers play, and University of Phoenix Stadium, the home of the Arizona Cardinals that's in the same Westgate Entertainment District as Jobing.com Arena.
