Cardinal Stadium reviews
Great views from every seat and EVERY seat has a true “seat” with back and armrest. Cup holders on seat in front. Good leg room. Acoustics are fantastic. TWO jumbo screens. Concessions and bathrooms..... more »
Attended my first game. Louisville vs Clemson. The band presentations was excellent. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. more »
As a season ticket holder, the upgrades and expansion are amazing! Can't wait to kickoff this year's tailgating fun!
Great place to tail gate in the parking lot, or enjoy a Cardinals football game. Great seats and concessions.
