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 Seattle Kraken's American Hockey League franchise includes an adjacent training facility and community gathering spaces. Ground-breaking and arena construction are scheduled for 2021. The project will be complete during the last quarter of 2022 with the Kraken's inaugural AHL Palm Springs franchise targeting to begin play in the 2022-23 season.
