Cardinal fans rally around their team with a dedication like none other. And for good reason, considering that the Cardinals, founded in 1898, are the oldest continuously-run professional football franchise in the nation. They began in Chicago’s south side and called themselves the “Morgan Athletic Club.” Shortly thereafter, an interested party by the name of Chris O’Brien — a painting and decorating contractor — decided to finance the team. He promptly found a better location for his team at Normal Field. The team adopted the name of the field and called themselves the “Normals.”
O’Brien found a bargain on used jerseys at the Chicago University. They had faded from maroon to a reddish color. O’Brien exclaimed, “They are not maroon — they are Cardinal red.” Hence the name was established and due to their location; their new name became the Racine Cardinals. They remained in Chicago until 1960 where they were moved to St. Louis.
After 28 years in St. Louis, the Cardinals relocated to Arizona and made the Sun Devil stadium on the campus of Arizona State University their new home. In 2006, the Cardinals moved into their new and present location — the University of Phoenix Stadium, which is an enclosed dome stadium.
The new stadium is an architectural masterpiece in design and function. At 1.7 million square feet, it boosts 88 luxury lofts, 7,501 club seats, seven club lounges and general seating for 63,400. The stadium has the ability to expand to hold 73,000 during Super Bowls or college Bowl games. To get a great seat, purchase your Arizona Cardinals football tickets before the season starts.
