  • I love the PAC12 stadiums and this one is one of my favorites! The atmosphere is fantastic for a football game. The downtown location is great if you want to grab dinner/drinks before a game

  • I know the stadium upgrades have not been completed, but improvements need to be made. I hear a new video board is coming, which is very much needed. The drinking area was a joke. Huge line to get in just to stand in line for a drink. So much space available and only 4 spots to get drinks. Put up some more stations to be able to purchase drinks and shorten the lines. Then, if you do get a drink, there are a few small monitors showing the game, no sound, no score or information on it. You can not really tell what is going on with the game but finally hearing the crowd noise. Maybe it is not done yet, but it is poorly set up for now.
  • What can I say other than I'm a Sun Devil. Is Sun Devil Stadium the mecca of all of sports? No. I like the new beer garden section but it's isolated from the rest of the stadium and they should serve beer in the upper tier, it's not the student section. The bleachers are still a hard way to sit upstairs. It's still in reconstruction so I'm looking to see the improvements. So why the 5 star review? Because I'm a Sun Devil and love ASU.
  • So many activities in one place but lots of stairs and kiss of walking if you have family that has disabilities. But the area is beautiful and full of school spirit. Great for picture ops!
  • Upgrading the old place. Still has that old school feel & very energetic crowds at ASU games. Get there early as parking may be difficult & they always have a free party setup.
  • newly renovated stadium is fine while not complete. The north side is all new, but makes entrance into the stadium quick and easy. Seats are still to close, but gotta pack them in ! Go Devils!
