Sun Devil Stadium

Map & Directions 500 E. Veterans Way
Tempe, AZ 85281


Phoenix New Times' Description

Despite all the complaining and groaning about Sun Devil Stadium, the facility remains one of the finest football venues in the country. Yes, the toilets are old and concessions stands are limited, but for pure football fans, the proximity to the field and clean site lines can't be beat. When the fans are fired up, the stadium generates a roar that spills down Mill Avenue and blots out the jets flying into Sky Harbor Airport. The stadium was built during Arizona State University's golden era of football under the direction of former coach Frank Kush, after whom the field is named. It's a beautiful football stadium, plain and simple. And despite some derisive feelings about Sun Devil Stadium, the National Football League Players Association named the stadium the fifth best facility in the NFL back when the Cardinal's played there.

Merchant's Description

It has hosted Arizona State University football games since 1958, including the game on Sept. 21, 1996, when the playing surface was named Frank Kush Field as ASU upset top-ranked Nebraska 19-0. It has hosted four national championships - Notre Dame vs. West Virginia in 1988, Nebraska vs. Florida in 1996, Tennessee vs. Florida State in 1999 and Ohio State vs. Miami in 2003. And it played host to the NFL's ultimate showcase - the 1996 Super Bowl where the Dallas Cowboys pulled out a close win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The stadium, a favorite of television production crews, was the the home of the Tostito's Fiesta Bowl for 35 years and the NFL's Arizona Cardinals for 18 seasons. Beginning in 2006, Sun Devil Stadium became the new home of the Insight Bowl.

    Remember the scene in Jerry Maguire when Rod Tidwell jumps up after a big hit and does a crazy end zone dance? That happened in this stadium. SHOW ME THE MONEY!

  • Sports Authority on 11/22/10

    Don't be fooled by the hot Arizona sun! The playing surface is natural grass.

  • Every Sun Devil must sit in the student section during games and cheer our team on to victory!
