State Farm Stadium Events

State Farm Stadium opened in 2006 as the new home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals after the team had spent nearly two decades as tenants in what was effectively a college football stadium. State Farm Stadium is often described as one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world, featuring a spectacular retractable roof and a grass surface that can be rolled in and out of the stadium (to protect it from damage during non-football events and to ensure that it gets enough sunlight). The atmosphere inside the stadium for an NFL game or a concert (especially featuring stars like Taylor Swift) is among the most electric in the country. Get yourself involved!
