University of Phoenix Stadium is a multipurpose stadium located in Glendale, Arizona. Its primary tenants are the Arizona Cardinals of the NFL and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The new stadium is located across the street from the Jobing.com Arena, home to the NHL Phoenix Coyotes. The University of Phoenix, a for-profit university specializing in adult education, acquired the naming rights in September 2006, shortly after the stadium had opened under the name Cardinals Stadium. It is important to note that the University of Phoenix name is applied as a corporate sponsor, and not as the home stadium of the University.

The 63,400-seat stadium (expandable to 73,000) opened on August 1, 2006 after three years of construction. It is considered an architectural icon for the region and was named by Business Week as one of the 10 “most impressive” sports facilities on the globe due to the combination of its retractable roof and roll-in natural grass field[1]. It is the only American facility on the list.
