Sun Devil Stadium

500 E. Veterans Way
Tempe, AZ 85281
Best Of
Despite all the complaining and groaning about Sun Devil Stadium, the facility remains one of the finest football venues in the country. Yes, the toilets are old and concessions stands are limited, but for pure football fans, the proximity to the field and clean site lines can't be beat. When the fans are fired up, the stadium generates a roar that spills down Mill Avenue and blots out the jets flying into Sky Harbor Airport. The stadium was built during Arizona State University's golden era of football under the direction of former coach Frank Kush, after whom the field is named. It's a beautiful football stadium, plain and simple. And despite some derisive feelings about Sun Devil Stadium, the National Football League Players Association named the stadium the fifth best facility in the NFL back when the Cardinal's played there.
