America West Arena, Phoenix, AZ

Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly America West Arena and US Airways Center) is a sports and entertainment arena in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. It opened on June 6, 1992, at a construction cost of $89 million.

The arena, which is situated near Chase Field, is named after its sponsor, US Airways, after the 2005 reverse acquisition of US Airways by America West. The naming rights agreement is set until 2022, though its future is questionable following US Airways' plans to merge with American Airlines, which already has its name on arenas in Dallas and Miami.

The arena finished renovations in 2003, which added an air-conditioned glassed pavilion to keep people cool while waiting in line for tickets or before events. These renovations were part of the Phoenix Suns plan to keep the arena viable when Jobing.com Arena would open and take event dates from America West Arena.[9] The idea to remake the arena came to Jerry Colangelo when he visited Staples Center, and envisioned a similar entertainment district in Phoenix.
