Ontario's arena play

Ontario arena

Citizens Business Bank Arena will be located west of Ontario Mills, north of Interstate 10, and is due to open October 2008. The city of Ontario is shepherding the project, but Anschutz Entertainment Group, which co-owns the Kings and runs Staples Center, will operate the facility. AEG is promising a minor league hockey team, apparently to be affiliated with the Kings. This latest update from the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin says the arena will seat 8,900 for sports and 11,000 for concerts. Here's also a look at the arena on the website of the adjacent mixed-use development.
