State Farm Stadium
The State Farm Stadium is primarily a football stadium, the home of the Arizona Cardinals. It is located in the west valley in Glendale, Arizona. Not only can you see football games here, but there are many other events held there including concerts, tradeshows, soccer games, basketball games, RV shows, professional wrestling and more.
The grass is always greener at the State Farm Stadium due to the retractable field that can be moved to the outside of the building. When outside, not only does the grass get some much needed sunshine, but it also gets a break from the events going on inside that would typically ruin grass, like motocross and monster truck shows. The roof is also retractable, so the sun can always shine inside the stadium as well.
Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLIX were both hosted at the Stadium.

Parking on Cardinal game days is allowed in the Sportsman Park only for ticket holders with a permit. Others can park in lots around the facility or in Westgate or the Tanger Outlet Mall.
