The Phoenix Stadium is designed by the architect Peter Eisenman, and is modelled after a barrel cactus, which is the most widespread plant in the Arizona desert, and the entire cost of the project building of the stadium is around 455 million dollars.
94,000 ft² of bermuda grass
The main objective of the project is keeping the grass in perfect condition, and with the fast and low growing type Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass it gives a perfect dense and soft cushion for walking and playing on. The field will support 94,000 square feet of natural grass.
Always ready for game-day
The stadium is unique in its construction with a movable field that is 234 feet wide by 400 long and takes 45 min. to move. An opening on one of the sides of the stadium allows the playing field to move outside the building, so the entire surface can be exposed to daylight and sunlight until game-day most of the year, and get its nourishment, maintenance and grooming.
