The Arizona Cardinals on Aug. 12 will play their first NFL game in the new Cardinals Stadium, located in Glendale, about 20 miles west of Downtown Phoenix. The stadium is the first and only stadium in North America that is capable of completely removing the grass playing field from the stadium. In fact, the grass field remains outside the stadium in the sun until game day to get the maximum amount of sunshine and nourishment, eliminating humidity problems inside the stadium and providing unrestricted access to the stadium floor for events and staging. The tray rests atop tracks and rolls out on steel wheel sets powered by small electric motors. It takes approximately 45-60 minutes to move the tray completely in/out of the stadium. The tray supports approximately 94,000 square feet (over 2 acres) of natural grass. World-renowned architect Peter Eisenman, along with HOK Sport, created the exterior design of the stadium.
