The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football team based in the Phoenix metropolitan area. The Cardinals compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member of the National Football Conference West division, and play their home games at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, a suburb Northwest of Phoenix, US.

The 63,400-capacity State Farm Stadium is a multipurpose stadium in Glendale, Arizona, United States, West of Phoenix. It is the home of the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL) and the annual Fiesta Bowl. The State Farm Stadium replaced the 53,599-capacity Sun Devil Football Stadium in Tempe, Arizona, as the home of the Cardinals.

‘Daktronics’ further stated that the North end zone display features 10-millimeter pixel spacing and measures 30 feet high by 117 feet wide, that’s 3,663 square feet totaling 3.1 million pixels. It is 44 percent larger and has more than seven times as many pixels as the previous display. Aside from the increase in resolution, the new display includes the same capabilities of showing all the game information, out of town scores and other statistical information fans expect to see at football games and other live events.

Informed Jay Parker, Daktronics Vice- President of Live Events, “This upgrade will have State Farm Stadium prepared to host the largest football game of the year while also bringing an improved gameday experience to Arizona Cardinals fans all season long. We’re honored to continue our longstanding relationship with the team and venue as we build something we can all be proud of in Arizona.”

Two ribbon-style displays were included with these upgrades to help supplement the main display and create an improved atmosphere for audiences at every event. These displays also feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing and add to the entire system which now totals more than 20,000 square feet of digital display space.
