Arena / Stadium · Tourist Spot
State Farm Stadium, formerly known as University of Phoenix Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in the western United States, located in Glendale, Arizona, west of Phoenix. It is the home of the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL) and the annual Fiesta Bowl. It replaced Tempe's Sun Devil Stadium as the Valley of the Sun's main stadium. The stadium is adjacent to the Gila River Arena, home of the Arizona Coyotes NHL team.

The stadium has hosted the Fiesta Bowl, 2007 and 2011 BCS National Championship Games, 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship, Super Bowl XLII in 2008, the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl XLIX in 2015, and will host Super Bowl LVII in 2023. For soccer, it was one of the stadiums for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the Copa América Centenario in 2016. For basketball, it hosted the NCAA Final Four in 2017, which is scheduled to return in 2024.

The University of Phoenix acquired the naming rights in September 2006, shortly after the stadium had opened under the name Cardinals Stadium and retained the rights until September 2018. The Cardinals and State Farm insurance company reached an agreement on an 18-year commitment and it became "State Farm Stadium."

  • This venue is always a great night out! The seating is extremely accommodating and allows for great views of any event from almost any seat. We have attended almost a dozen different types of concerts and events here, all of which were at night and ran well into 1-2am and all of which were some of the best we have ever had the pleasure of attending. If there is something happening here that you are interested in attending there is no need to rethink going, just go and have an amazing time!
  • Great stadium, Reasonably priced tickets. Friendly staff and fans. Especially considering we are the away fans. Always felt welcomed and safe. Exact opposite of Philadelphia were you take you life in your own hands.
