University of Phoenix Stadium Tickets
Opened in August of 2006, since it was first unveiled, the University of Phoenix Stadium has been garnering the attention of fans from all over the city. Located in neighboring Glendale, Arizona, the University of Phoenix Stadium is actually not for use by a local university. Instead, the stadium is known mostly for being the home of the Arizona Cardinals of the NFL. The stadium is located right next to the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale and is known for being one of the most innovative stadiums of its kind.
The University of Phoenix Stadium is actually the first arena to features fully retractable natural grass surfaces. This is one of the primary features that has made the University of Phoenix Stadium so well known. The grass of the stadium is not only completely real but it was the first grass surface to be built on top of an AirField Systems draining system. There is an opening on one side of the field so that the playing field can physically be rolled outside to the exterior. This allows the entire turf to be exposed to real daylight. Once the stadium needs to be in use, the natural grass turf can be rolled right back inside the stadium. The innovative features such as this that are added to the stadium have made it one of the most technologically advanced playing arenas in professional sports today.
The stadium is also known around the country for being the home of the annual Fiesta Bowl; one of the biggest college football bowl games in the sport. The University of Phoenix Stadium has also hosted Super Bowl XLII and is slated to host Super Bowl XLIX in 2015. Every four years the high tech stadium also hosts the BCS National Championship Game. This is the very event that has set the attendance record for the University of Phoenix Stadium. When the game was held in 2011, the arena had an attendance record of 78,603 guests. However, the typical seating capacity of the arena for football games in 63,400. Thanks to the unique design of the facility there are features that actually allow the stadium to expand so more fans can get in on the action whether its for a BCS Bowl Game or for a home Arizona Cardinals matchup.
