University of Phoenix StadiumArizona Cardinals
1 Cardinals Dr, Glendale, AZ, 85305
The Cardinals were formed as a football team in 1898. From their existence the Cardinals have shared a stadium with some other team until 2006 when Cardinal Stadium was built and opened. Shortly after the stadium had opened the University of Phoenix acquired the naming rights for 20 years and changed the name to University of Phoenix. The University of Phoenix Stadium was built on 28 acres site with the stadium taking up three. The surrounding 25 acres is referred to as Sportsman’s Park and within the park 8 acres of it is called Great Lawn used for tailgating. Construction of the stadium began in 2003. Expected to be completed by the 2005 season was delayed a year opening in 2006. The seating capacity is 63,400 and can be expandable to 72,800. The total cost of the project was $455 million with the stadium costing $395.4 million, the land costing $17.8 million and remaining $41.7 million for site improvements. The stadium has the first fully retractable roof, side and playing field that can move in and out of the structure. The retractable roof consisted of two panels made out of translucent “Bird-Air” fabric. The roof can be opened or closed in about twelve minutes. The retractable natural grass playing field is the first in North America. On game day the field is rolled into position, but is kept outside the stadium in its rolled out state the rest of the year.
