The University of Phoenix Stadium the home of the Arizona Cardinals will get a season packed workout in 2014, starting with the teams training camp for the second year in row, where the team allow the fans to come out and watch the teams practice for two weeks before the pre-season. Training camp this year will be in late July and will close some time before the last pre-season game.
The stadium will go through two home pre-season games, followed by eight games in the regular season and perhaps with the expectations of the team this year they could be in at least one home game for the playoffs. In the mix will be a huge concert in September featuring the teen boy group One Direction.
The real fireworks will be going off when the stadium host the popular Fiesta Bowl followed by its first pro-bowl, and of course the Super Bowl a week later. This Stadium has been marked as one of the best facilities in professional sports and this year it will generate much needed revenue for all businesses surrounding the area and for the city of Glendale and Phoenix.
It will be even more spectacular should the home team Cardinals some how make it to this game and become the first team to ever play in a SuperBowl in their own home facility.
This may not be that far off considering they are the only team that beat the now champion Seahawks, and the 49ers having some off season issues that could effect their season could leave the division up for grabs this year.
