  • The Cardinals’ new stadium opened in 2006.

No matter their NFL odds, the Arizona Cardinals seem to always play in entertaining games every season at State Farm Stadium. The venue has also been the home of Super Bowls and musical events.

Where Did the Arizona Cardinals Play Before State Farm Stadium?

The Cardinals played at Sun Devil Stadium, home of the Arizona State football team in Tempe, Arizona, before they had a stadium of their own.

The Cardinals played there from 1988, the first year after their move from St. Louis, until their own stadium was ready in 2006.

When Did the Cardinals Move to State Farm Stadium?

The Cardinals began playing at their own venue, now called State Farm Stadium, in 2006.

What Was the Old Name of State Farm Stadium?

State Farm Stadium was previously known as University of Phoenix Stadium. 

It had that name from 2006 until 2018 when the Cardinals agreed to an 18-year naming rights agreement with State Farm Insurance.
