Arizona Has More Going On For Sports Fans Than The Super Bowl
Arizona has a ton of professional sports action going on, pretty much, year-round.
Almost all eyes are on Arizona this weekend as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles meet in Super Bowl LVII. (That's 57, in case you don't do roman numerals.) The game will be played at the Cardinals stadium in Glendale, kickoff is at 4:30 pm, MST.
It's a monster week for football fans worldwide but it's not the only professional sporting event in Arizona. The city of Phoenix and its surrounding area are loaded with pro sports teams and venues.
In addition to the Arizona Cardinals, Arizona has a team for just about every major sport and they all play within or adjacent to the states largest city, Phoenix. Phoenix, by the way, is a pretty easy road trip for El Paso sports fans and concert lovers.
Being that they are well stocked on huge sporting venues, big bands and entertainers never have a problem finding a place to play there.
- When it comes to the NFL, Arizona, Glendale specifically, is home to the Arizona Cardinals.
- For basketball fans, the NBA is represented by the Phoenix Suns. (Talking Stick Arena)
- If you're into hockey, the NHL has the Arizona Coyotes. They're moving to Mullett Arena in Tempe.
- MLB fans can watch the Diamondbacks play at Chase Field in Phoenix.
- Phoenix also hosts several NASCAR events each year at Phoenix Raceway.
- Supercross comes once a year too. (For 2024, it's April 8th in Glendale.)
Phoenix is 430 miles from El Paso. That's 205 miles closer than Dallas, 316 miles closer than Houston, and 121 miles closer than San Antonio.
