  • State Farm Stadium opened in 2006.
  • Construction for the stadium began in 2003.

In its first decade, State Farm Stadium was home to some memorable NFL betting moments. The venue in Glendale, Arizona, has been chosen as the host of multiple Super Bowls, including Super Bowl 57 in 2023.

When Did State Farm Stadium Open?

State Farm Stadium opened in 2006, the first year the Arizona Cardinals played a game there. Construction began three years earlier in 2003.

It was originally known as University of Phoenix Stadium until 2018 when the Cardinals agreed to an 18-year naming rights agreement with State Farm Insurance.

State Farm Stadium’s capacity is 63,400 but can be expanded to 73,000 for “mega-events.” That likely includes the two Super Bowls it hosted before 2023.
