The Arizona Coyotes boast one of the most dedicated fan bases in the NHL, their loyalty unwavering. Regrettably, the team has faced challenges engaging more casual supporters and finding a permanent home. Today's news, however, carries a genuinely positive tone for these steadfast Coyotes enthusiasts.

Amidst swirling rumors suggesting the Coyotes might bid adieu to Arizona, recent developments paint a different picture. As per reliable sources, including John Gambadoro, the Coyotes are actively exploring the possibility of establishing a fresh base.

Intriguingly, #Coyotes owner Alex Meruelo has submitted a letter of intent to acquire 41 acres in Mesa, Arizona, earmarked for the squad's future arena. Beyond this, Meruelo's sights are set on other prospective locations, encompassing Mesa, Phoenix, and Scottsdale.

Meruelo's ambitious aim is to secure multiple sites through contractual agreements, thus providing a range of options. The intent behind this strategy is to have a comprehensive blueprint in place by the initial quarter of 2024. This timeline aligns with the target of inaugurating the new arena in time for the commencement of the 2026-27 season.

With the anticipated deadline around January to solidify the plan, it's evident that the Coyotes are making impressive strides toward securing their lasting presence in Arizona.
