Arizona Cardinals Preseason Details
The Arizona Cardinals have a rich history in professional football dating back to the team’s years in Chicago from 1920 to 1959 and St. Louis from 1960 to 1987. Since the Cardinals moved to the desert, the team has developed a large fanbase due in part to the atmosphere at preseason and regular season games. The team improved the fan experience by moving from Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium to State Farm Stadium in 2006. Aside from the smell of grilled food from tailgate parties, State Farm Stadium in Glendale features eight acres of green space called The Great Lawn. This event space is packed with Cardinals fans before every preseason game who want to toss footballs, eat, and enjoy music.
The Arizona Cardinals stay close to home for training camp and their preseason schedule. The team practices and plays home preseason games at State Farm Stadium, which also serves as their regular season home. Fans can attend practices and seek autographs from their favorite players with no admissions fee and free parking. The Cardinals offer concessions, prime seating in the stadium’s lower levels, and a fan zone with interactive attractions during most practices. State Farm Stadium is also a welcome reprieve from Arizona’s sweltering summer heat. Prior to the preseason schedule, the Cardinals play a Red-White scrimmage that is open to the public.
Fans attending preseason practices at State Farm Stadium get a chance to check out the stadium’s modern amenities. The 63,400-seat stadium held its first events in 2006 and subsequently hosted Super Bowls and college football national championship games. State Farm Stadium features a retractable playing surface that can be swapped out for conferences and events in about an hour. The Cardinals can also open the stadium’s retractable roof when Arizona’s weather cooperates. During preseason games, attendees can enjoy concession novelties like the seven-pound Gridiron Burger and mainstays like the Taco-Dilla meal.
Arizona frequently plays AFC rivals Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, and Los Angeles Chargers in the preseason. The Cardinals also rekindle their NFC East rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys in preparation for the regular season. The Cardinals-Cowboys rivalry dates back to the team’s St. Louis years but remains a preseason fixture despite Arizona’s move to the NFC West in 2002.
