University of Phoenix Stadium

1 Cardinals Drive Glendale, AZ 85305-3147 | Glendale | 623-433-7100

Location Description:

Standing out amidst the dusty lots and cropland of Glendale’s western end, this silvery gridiron cathedral is where the football faithful flock on certain Sundays in the fall months for every Arizona Cardinals home game. Offering 63,400 seats (expandable up to 72,200 for the playoffs), it also features 88 luxury suites, three posh lounges, and 47 concession stands providing everything from American game-time favorites like hot dogs and wings to local spins on Mexican favorites and barbecue. In addition to being the site of the thrilling victories and tragic defeats of the Arizona Cardinals (more the latter than the former), as well as the annual Fiesta Bowl and two BCS Championships, the stadium has hosted sold-out concerts by The Rolling Stones and U2, a WrestleMania, and SuperBowl XLII in 2008, which featured the New York Giants’ impossible come-from-behind upset of the undefeated New England Patriots. Here’s hoping that won’t be only time the Vince Lombardi trophy is held aloft inside the joint, you hear us, Red Birds?
