Directions to the Phoenix area Cardinals Stadium
This new Arizona NFL Stadium is actually in the suburb of Glendale, AZ
The official name of the new Phoenix Cardinals Stadium is the "University of Phoenix Stadium." The University of Phoenix won the naming-rights bidding wars. So, while many people call this the "Cardinals Stadium," that really isn't its official name. (The University of Phoenix is the popular college aimed at working adults who would like to get their degrees in a non-traditional style. Many cities have a University of Phoenix location; perhaps there's one near you.)
ARIZONA CARDINALS STADIUM ADDRESS: The new greater-Phoenix football stadium is actually located in Glendale, one of the metro area's western suburbs. The Cardinals NFL Stadium address is: One Cardinals Dr, Glendale, AZ 85305.
ARIZONA CARDINALS STADIUM PHONE NUMBER: (623) 433-7100 is the main phone number for the University of Phoenix Stadium.
SEATING CHART OF THE CARDINALS STADIUM: The seating map of the University of Phoenix NFL Stadium changes from event to event. The official website of this Phoenix stadium has a list of different seating charts from which you may choose, depending on which football game (or other event) that you'll be attending. You may use the next link to view the Cardinals Stadium website, where you'll find the seating charts conveniently listed under the "events and tickets" tab.
THE JOBING.COM ARENA ADDRESS: 9400 W.Maryland Ave, Glendale, AZ 85305. Though the address looks much different, this location is really "right next door" to the new Cardinals Stadium.
THE JOBING.COM ARENA PHONE NUMBER: (623) 772-3200 is the telephone number for the Jobing.com Arena.
SEATING MAP OF JOBING.COM ARENA: Just like the football stadium, the Jobing Arena has a number of different seating charts, depending on the specific event you'll be attending. Here's a link to the seating map page of the Jobing Arena's website.
DIRECTIONS TO THE CARDINALS STADIUM and JOBING.COM ARENA: From Interstate 10, head northwards on the Loop 101 Freeway. The Phoenix-area Stadium sits directly to the east side of the freeway between the Bethany Home Road exit and the Glendale Ave exit. You may use either one of these 2 freeway exits to reach the new stadium's parking lots.
MAP TO THE PHOENIX STADIUM and JOBING.COM ARENA: Here's a very detailed Google map to the Cardinals Stadium and Jobing.com Arena which even shows the layout of the parking lots, too. (To see the parking lots clearly, please look at the map in its "satellite" view.) If you are coming to the stadium on a non-game day for a tour, you'll want to park on the northern end of the stadium (near 95th Ave & Maryland.)
GAME DAY PARKING: Parking when there's no game, however, is not the same story as trying to get parked on game day itself. If you want to avoid a hassle, then arrive early. But not TOO early...because you can only begin parking 4 hours before game time.
Printable PDF map of Cardinals Stadium Parking lots: To help you find the right parking lot, here's a PDF map of the Cardinal's Stadium parking lot. You should note that not all game day parking is directly at the Cardinals Stadium itself. The "blue" parking lot is at the Westgate Center, and even farther away, the "brown" parking lot is down 91st Ave near Kellis high school. (For your convenience, the brown lot has a shuttle; it begins to run two hours before kickoff time.)
MAP OF METRO PHOENIX, ARIZONA: Though the Phoenix Cardinals stadium & Jobing.com stadium are conveniently located and easy to reach, out-of-towners may have a problem finding it. That's because the loop 101 freeway curves around the entire northern half of the metro area and intersects with a number of different streets and freeways. The NFL football stadium and the Jobing.com arena are located on the west loop 101 section, which intersects directly with I-10. There is also a North Loop 101 section and an East Loop 101 section. Neither of these other portions connect directly with Interstate 10, however; you may use that fact to assure yourself that you're in the right place. Here's a Google map of Phoenix, AZ so you may notice how the Loop 101 freeway curves around.
PDF Map to Cardinals Stadium: If you would like to print up a map at home to take with you, here is a PDF map of Glendale, Arizona with the Cardinals stadium clearly marked. This is actually a bicycle map, but, who cares, right? You'll probably have to enlarge it in order to see it very well. The stadium is near the bottom part of the map near the corner of Loop 101 and Glendale Ave.
