Our Mission

Acrisure Arena will be located in the heart of the Coachella Valley on 43.35 acres of land at I-10 and Cook Street, land owned by the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation. The project is privately funded at no risk to Riverside County taxpayers. Construction of the new arena is expected to create hundreds of permanent and temporary jobs for the community. The arena is projected to open in December 2022. 

The arena will be more than 300,000 square feet and feature more than 11,000 seats, of which modern suites and four premium hospitality clubs are available only to 920 Premium Seats and Suite ticket holders.

Acrisure Arena will be the home of the Seattle Kraken’s American Hockey League (AHL) team, Coachella Valley Firebirds, and include an adjoining community ice skating facility that will serve as a year-round community gathering space and the training center for the CV Firebirds.


With a focus on prioritizing technology, sustainability and green initiatives, the world-class arena will also be built for music and host the best and biggest names in the music industry on an annual basis. In addition to sports and entertainment, the arena will accommodate conventions, large meetings, international events as well as award shows and exhibitions.
