It's in Glendale, a couple of miles northeast of Downtown Phoenix, AZ. Right to the north of the stadium is Glendale Arena, home of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Due to the heat it is a must, thats one of the reasons why no one shows up to cards games now in Sun Devil Stadium (theyre also not very good), the baseball field in Phoenix has one as well.

When you average 40 degrees Celcius in August/September, having a retractable roof stadium for (American) football is a must.

The unique aspect of the roof in Phoenix/Glendale is that it's on a elipical track, a first in athletic venues. Most retractable roofs are on a straight track, including Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix.

I love this stadium, when I first saw the renders, I thought 'they'll never build it' but hey they proved me wrong, I'm soo jealous of this!

but why is it that most NFL stadiums have that blank wall on the sides? even relliant in Texas has it.

Also, I don't see the commonality. The Reliant portion is obviously an overhang, there for the huge widescreen video board and ad board. Its hanging off of a structural part of the roof. The AZ wall, looks like a wall. Keeps the roof higher, keeping the stadium more airy is my guess. Its a dome, not an outdoor english soccer stadium. I don't think its much different than the large space above the ends at Dragao or Zentralstadion. Instead of being outdoors, like Dragao, the goal of this stadium is to be indoors when the roof is closed.

I bet you see all kinds of ads, posters and flags. Remember, this is the US, not a stadium trying gain a UEFA 5 star rating. Ads will be everywhere, and that's probably the best place. One thing that certainly will be there is their crowd noise meter.
