Arizona Cardinals: Ranking the 4 NFC West stadiums
By Scott Allen
The Arizona Cardinals have a nice place they call home on Sunday’s at University of Phoenix Stadium
The Arizona Cardinals play in loud stadiums and they spend at least nine Sunday’s every season in the two loudest stadiums in the NFL. With eight home games at University of Phoenix and one at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, they deal with a lot of noise.
With the St. Louis Rams move to Los Angeles, the Cardinals will now have two more outdoor games every season. The Cardinals are now the only NFC West team that has an opportunity to play indoors, for now. Los Angeles will be building a new stadium which should be ready in three seasons in 2019. Here’s how the current stadiums in the NFC West rank.
4. Los Angeles Coliseum
Pro’s: It has stood the test of time. It will also get some renovations but the Rams won’t reap most of them getting to move in 2019 to their new digs. It is the closest road trip for the Cardinals and their fans now. Just a six or seven hour drive down I-10 west.
Con’s: Almost everything. It’s in Los Angeles.
What does it have that others don’t: History and lots of it. The USC Trojans play there as well. It is the go-to stadium when you need a football game to be played in the Los Angeles Area, although people at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena might argue with you on that one.
It is certainly the oldest stadium. It will only need to be used by the Rams for the next three seasons. Thank goodness the Cardinals only need to play there three times.
