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.

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.

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.

  • One of my favorite stadiums, the Sun Devil Stadium sits next to the notorious A Mountain and the Tempe Town Lake, surrounded by beautiful industrial buildings. The view from the stadium is astounding, especially when seen at sunset when the sun disappears from view. Inside the stadium is an amazing jumbotron with other screens that display the game up close and features during the game. The seats are numerous, but every viewing angle is perfect. The field is a perfect green throughout the season and is great to see the players playing on this turf. The fans at this stadium are wild and you are guaranteed to have a good time watching the game with them. The snacks and beverages are expensive, but so is any other stadium food. All in all, Sun Devil Stadium is one of ASU's best creations and it will definitely show with this year's refresh and more to come.
  • Great venue for the best school in the nation! Easy to maneuver, you're guaranteed to have a good time!
