Through the Years

Glendale, Arizona is excited to welcome back the Super Bowl in 2023. This will be the third time Glendale has hosted this mega event. Take a look at the game’s history in Glendale.

Super Bowl 2006

2006: Stadium Opens

In 2003, Glendale broke ground on a new stadium and three years later the University of Phoenix Stadium opened on August 1, 2006 becoming the new home of the NFL Cardinals.

While it would first be known as the Cardinals Stadium, University of Phoenix acquired the naming rights in September 2006. This architectural icon is the first stadium on the continent to feature both a retractable roof and retractable playing field. Designed by Peter Eisenman, the stadium’s exterior skin of shimmering metal panels reflects the shifting desert light while 21 vertical glass walled slots incorporated into the building exterior offer fans inside the stadium outstanding views of the desert horizon.

At the time, the telecast of the game broke the previous record for the most watched game with 97.5 million viewers tuning in. Local celebrity Jordan Sparks sang the National Anthem, and fans rocked out to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers during the halftime show. Giants fans celebrated the end of the 4th quarter with a winning score of 17-14.

Super Bowl 2015

2015: Super Bowl XLIX

Glendale welcomed its second Super Bowl on February 1, 2015. Seen by 114.4 million viewers, the game is the most watched program in American television history. The 70,288 Patriots and Seahawks fans in attendance witnessed Idina Menzel belt out the National Anthem while Katy Perry entertained during the halftime performance. 120.8 million viewers tuned in during the 4th quarter as the Patriots made their comeback, winning the game with a final score of 28-24.
