Tempe events include the first ASU Sun Devil home football game of the season when the Devils take on the Northern Arizona University on Saturday, September 3 at 7:45 p.m.

In addition to great Pac-12 grid iron action, football fans can look forward to major improvements to ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium this year. Phases I and II of a three phase renovation will be completed in time for this Saturday’s game. The new features include an open-concept stadium design that will offer better views of the surrounding Arizona landscape and increased airflow in the concourse. Fan experience will be enhanced with the addition of WiFi, more legroom, as well as increases in the number of concessions and restrooms on the north, south and west sides of the stadium. The third and final phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of summer 2017.

So don your favorite pitch fork finery, check out the changes at Sparkey’s house and cheer for your Devils this Saturday.  Visit the 2016 Sun Devil Football website for the home game schedule and ticket information.
