Member Review - D.J. Fluck of Stadium Scene

A lot of modern amenities, and a wide variety of food and drink choices available throughout the upper and lower concourses.  Be sure to check out the patio before the game as Phoenix is one of the few cities where you can enjoy a beer outdoors during the winter!  

Good parking options around the stadium, but be prepared to pay $15-30 depending on how far away you are. 

Stadium Information

About Footprint Center:

Opened in 1992, this is the home of the Phoenix Suns (NBA), Phoenix Mercury (WNBA), and the Arizona Rattlers (Arena Football League).  Talking Stick Resort let their sponsorship contract end in 2020, so the venue was known temporarily as "Phoenix Suns Arena" before "Footprint Center" became the name in July of 2021.

Tour Info:

There doesn't appear to be any public tour offerings at this time.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

Bags, backpacks, briefcases, duffle bags larger than 14” x 14” x 6” are prohibited.  All bags subject to search before entry.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.

Parking Options

Garages around the arena and parking lot.
