Sun Devil Stadium is an outdoor football stadium located on the campus of Arizona State University, in Tempe, Arizona, United States. It is home to the Arizona State Sun Devils of the Pac-12 Conference. The stadium's current seating capacity is 64,248 and the playing surface is natural grass. Although the stadium is called Sun Devil Stadium, in 1996 the gridiron within the stadium was named Frank Kush Field in honor of the former coach of the ASU football team. The stadium is also sometimes referred to as the House of Heat. Frank Kush Field is currently undergoing a $256 million renovation set to be completed in time for the 2017 Season.Sun Devil Stadium has previously been the home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, from 1988 to 2005 and was the annual site of the Fiesta Bowl, from 1971 to 2006 and the Cactus Bowl since then.Construction and upgradesBuilt in 1958, the stadium's original capacity was 30,000. The first addition in 1976 substantially raised the capacity to 57,722. Seating was added to the south end of the stadium, along with press and sky boxes. A year later, in 1977, the upper tier was completed to bring seating to 70,311. In 1988, 1,700 more seats were added to bring the facility to its current capacity. During that time the Carson Student Athlete Center was added to the south end. The building is the home of the ASU Athletic Department.

  • Division 1 football at its liveliest. Stadium is old but being renovated nicely. Good viewing, loud and raucous fans.  more »
  • I have been attending ASU football games for over 40 years and found that you can't seem to get a bad seat no matter where you sit. When entering the stands, the long lines appear daunting, but it doe...  more »

  • Very nice stadium and a good game, the fireworks are great. But remember to bring ear plugs as there are many young and drunk college kids that love to shout I'm your ears while sitting directly behind you.
  • 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.
  • This Field Has Come Along Way. The Surroundings Are...Well In My Subjective Opinion Unmatched. I See Why Everyone Wants To Go!
  • Great place to watch football. Very unique stadium. I wish there was more parking but it's understandable that parking in a busy downtown area is limited. This place will be awesome when the construction is finished.
