The Suns played at Veterans Memorial Coliseum from their first season in 1968 until 1992, when America West Arena was built for $90 million. US Airways bought America West in 2005. The arena was considered ahead of its time, according to the arena website, with 88 luxury suites and more than 2,200 club seats, and its design spawned several similar arenas in the NBA's Western Conference. The arena hosted the 1995 and 2009 NBA All-Star Games and also is home to the Mercury of the WNBA. In December 2014, the arena was renamed the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
