SUN DEVIL STADIUM
Located on the campus of Arizona State University, Sun Devil Stadium has been the home of the ASU Sun Devils for over 50 years. In the mid 1950s, Arizona State University decided to construct a stadium for its football program. The stadium was constructed between two small mountains and was completed in time for the start of the 1958 season. It was named after the team and had a seating capacity of 30,000 when it opened on October 4, 1958 when ASU beat West Texas State. Since its opening many additions have been completed to Sun Devil Stadium. Beginning in 1976, the capacity was increased to over 57,000. The following year the capacity was increased to over 70,000 when the upper deck was completed.
After the 1987 NFL season, the St. Louis Cardinals moved to Arizona and Sun Devil Stadium. Prior to the team's first season at Sun Devil Stadium, more renovations were completed at the stadium. Over 1,000 seats were added, along with an athletic complex on the south end of the stadium, a scoreboard and four video boards. In 1989, a three-story, 60,000 square-foot building was constructed atop the upper deck on the west side, that contains two 30-suite levels, a modern press box, and eight additional private suites. Today, Sun Devil Stadium has over 73,000 seats. The main grandstand is in the shape of a horseshoe. Additional seating is located in the south end zone where the main video/scoreboard is located. Fans who attend games at Sun Devil Stadium receive outstanding views of the surrounding area. The Arizona Cardinals moved from Sun Devil Stadium and to University of Phoenix Stadium after the 2005 season. In addition to being the home of the Sun Devils, Sun Devil Stadium is the home of the annual Insight Bowl Game and has previously hosted the Fiesta Bowl from 1971-2006 including 4 National Championship games (1987, 1989, 1999, 2003).
