GLENDALE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The next time you're at a Cardinals game or maybe a concert at Jobing.com arena, you might see something new in the area.

The Tohono O'odham Nation is holding a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday for a new casino in Glendale.

Supporters say it brings in jobs and will boost the economy. Opponents are fighting it, saying the area already has too many casinos. However, their proposed legislation against it is in limbo right now so the casino building is going forward.
