Tempe new home for Cardinals

Tempe, Ariz., will be the future home for the Arizona Cardinals football team, as the Arizona Tourism and Sports Authority voted 7-2 to construct a new stadium one mile from the current stadium rather than in an undeveloped area in West Phoenix. The new stadium, with an opening date of 2004, would include a retractable roof and a natural grass field that would slide out of the structure when not in use. Since moving from St. Louis 13 years ago, the Cardinals have played at Sun Devil Stadium, home of the Arizona State University football team.
