GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jobing.com has acquired the naming rights of Glendale Arena, home of the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes, the team announced at a news conference Wednesday.

The arena has been without a corporate sponsor since it opened in December 2003.

Jobing.com, a Phoenix-based online employment service, will pay $2.5 million per year in the 10-year agreement.

The arena, also the home of an indoor lacrosse team and numerous concerts and trade shows, is next to the Arizona Cardinals' new stadium in the western suburbs of Phoenix. The Cardinals recently sold naming rights to their stadium to the University of Phoenix for $154.5 million over a 20-year span.

Founded in 1999, Jobing.com has 246 employees and serves employers and job seekers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas.
