HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) A Nevada city council has approved construction of a community ice arena owned by the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights.

News outlets report that the Henderson City Council unanimously approved the project Tuesday.

Officials said the council has committed to contributing more than $10.7 million to the 104,000-sq.-ft. (9,662-sq.-m) facility that will ultimately cost more than $25 million.

The arena will occupy the site of the Henderson Convention Center in the downtown of the city 16 mi. (26 km) southeast of Las Vegas. The city will demolish the center.

The team will pay a minimum of $40,000 annually for a 20-year lease.

A team spokesman said the Knights will continue practicing at City National Arena in Summerlin. The Henderson arena will host tournaments, youth camps and lessons.
