7,000 is not bad though, it really is a good size. Gonzaga seats only 6,000. In the future they could move the really big games to the Suns arena like Big East schools do.

Probably not. While it is a very short drive, like 10 minutes tops, downtown is such a mess with the parking, it may drive people away and probably students as well.

Downtown parking, especially in the evening, is easy. I go down there all the time for Dback games, Mercury Games, Rattlers Games, etc.

Plus, The Light Rail is only two miles from GCU arena - an easy shuttle for big games, and there is plans to extend the light rail down Camelback past GCU.

RE: Season ticket renewal
I don't see downtown as an option. I don't think Mueller would ever allow revenue to leave campus. Even if they did some sort of revenue sharing and it was a couple games... I just don't see it. Honestly, none of should be talking about expansion of an arena until everyone in the arena is buying tickets. There are probably still at least 1 1,000 tickets if not more, that are given away for free to employees and outside groups and more tickets are sold for less than $5. They would first need to be able to sell all tickets, then maybe raise single game prices. After that, if GCU still has 7,000 + consider a new arena. However... where will they put it. The current location of the arena does not seem like a big enough footprint. They have land at 27th ave and camelback, but have all but filled that space. That location would have been a perfect location for a new 10,000 seat arena, right next to the GCU hotel and Canyon 49 restaurant.

I think they would if they could, but... I don't see that dude selling. He's had a weird relationship with GCU. They would also love to have the corner of 35th ave and camelback where the El Taco Tote is located, but that dude won't sell at a reasonable price apparently.

Well there are some people that are living right off the main part campus that GCU has supposedly offered them like 10 times the value of the land and they still won't move.
