The Cardinals stadium has a roof. The playing surface is mounted on tracks, and it slides outside, allowing the use of natural grass indoors. It's all very nice (world class, actually) and the Cardinals absolutely do not deserve such a facility. Con of the century.
Mexico and Denmark played a friendly there in January. 43k attendance. And you aren't going to put an MLS team there? Really? If the Coyotes leave, that may actually move up the timetable a bit. Not that there is a lot of overlap, but it's less competition (especially for sponsors).
