Are you part of the Bird Gang and have wanted to tour the Birds Nest?
Great news for anyone who has ever wanted a tour of State Farm Stadium. The behind-the-scenes tours of the Glendale arena are scheduled to return on Sept. 15. The tours give a special inside look at this unique NFL stadium. Fans of all ages can see first hand restricted areas such as the press box, an exclusive private loft, the NFL visiting team locker room and a trip to the stadium floor.
Representatives from the arena say that specialized field move tours, pre-game tours and post-game tours are also be available.
The enormous stadium was built in Glendale on 95th and Maryland avenues in 2006. The stadium holds 63,400 fans on NFL Sundays but has the ability to expand to 73,000 for massive events like the College Football Playoff National Championship, the Super Bowl and Fiesta Bowl, and other events State Farm Stadium hosts.
Tours are offered at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and the Monday following a home game for the Arizona Cardinals. Tickets can be purchased at SeatGeek.com or at the stadium box office. Tour parking is free. Buying your ticket in advanced is recommended.
