The Arizona Coyotes announced an increase in seating capacity to approximately 50 percent at their home games for the rest of the season.

The new limit will be in place for the team’s next home game on Saturday when the St. Louis Blues visit Gila River Arena in Glendale. The approved capacity is 8,500 but, due to NHL protocols regarding seating, the Coyotes will cap attendance at 7,900 for all home games.
