Tailgate Coyotes Style

GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Phoenix Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc announced today that the Coyotes will be introducing tailgating at Jobing.com Arena for all weekend home games during the 2013-14 Coyotes regular season.

Tailgating on Jobing.com Arena parking lots (A, B, G, J, K and Y) will begin with the Coyotes first weekend regular season home game on Saturday, October 19 when the Coyotes take on the Detroit Red Wings. Game time is 6 p.m. with lots opening at 2:00 p.m. In total, the Coyotes will have 17 tailgating experiences during the regular season.

"We are excited to introduce tailgating prior to all Coyotes weekend home games this season," said LeBlanc. "We are very fortunate to live in a city that has such great weather during the hockey season so we are encouraging fans to come early to our weekend games and enjoy the great atmosphere outside Jobing.com Arena. We are continually looking for new ways to enhance the game experience for our fans."
