Ice in the Desert

OVG and the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation announced plans in September 2020 to build a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena in Palm Desert. The future home of the Coachella Valley Firebirds, an American Hockey League (AHL) franchise, the facility includes an adjacent training center and community gathering spaces. The project will be complete during the last quarter of 2022, with the Firebirds targeting to begin play during the 2022-23 season.
