The Northern Arizona Suns have announced they will be leaving Prescott Valley and the Findlay Toyota Center. The Suns Public Affairs Advisor Maria Baier said the COVID-19 pandemic forced the move. She says “Sadly, when the 2020-21 G-League season tips off, the team will be playing at a location, to be determined, in the Phoenix metro area, allowing us to share efficiencies and resources with the rest of the Suns organization.” Prescott Valley Mayor Kell Palguta said while it is unfortunate when an anchor tenant such as the Northern Arizona Suns leaves a facility such as the Findlay Toyota Center, the Town and the event center staff is looking toward the future. The mayor says “the goals and commitment of the arena staff will be to continue to put on great entertainment and events for our community. We hope to have a long-term tenant in place as soon as the opportunity presents itself, perhaps even another minor league hockey team.” The Northern Arizona Suns started play in the NBA “G-League” at the Findlay Toyota Center in 2016.
