LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Wranglers announced today that the organization will not build a new arena to play next season at The Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas.

In February the Wranglers announced plans to build an area on the fifth floor of the Plaza into a 3,500-seat arena at an estimated cost of $4 million to be paid by the Wranglers.

Last month the Wranglers opted to change their plans to build an ice-rink facility on the ground level at the Plaza on Main Street.

In a statement released by the the Plaza Hotel, the Wranglers organization announced they would not proceed with the arena project due to financial constraints.

"Everyone at the Plaza Hotel was excited about the prospect of being the new home of the Las Vegas Wranglers. We believed it was a great fit for our property, for downtown, and for the fans. Unfortunately, the Wranglers notified us this morning that the construction of the arena was determined by them to be too costly and they have chosen not to proceed with the project at the Plaza," reads the statement. "The Plaza made every effort to accommodate the project and bring the Wranglers downtown, and we are disappointed that the venture is no longer possible. At this time, The Plaza is unaware of what The Wranglers plans are. The Plaza remains committed to the Downtown community and will continue to seek new ventures that will be a benefit to all."

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
