The Wranglers Setting Up Shop at the Plaza Hotel

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- The president of The Wranglers hockey team announced Friday that the team will be staying in Las Vegas after inking a deal with the Plaza Hotel and Casino downtown.

Under the deal, the fifth floor of the property will be turned into a place for the team to play with a rink, seating for 3,500, locker rooms and media space. The plaza area is empty space but when finished will have a tented area for the games and other events.

Team owner Gary Jacobs and the Plaza are pitching in money to create the space. It is expected to be finished for a November home opener.

The plan comes after the Orleans Arena terminated its deal with team earlier this year leaving the Wranglers without a place to play. Under league rules, if the team had not made a deal, they would have had to move the franchise.

The team told 8 News NOW that it had other options but felt the Plaza was the best fit for them.
