Phoenix for Sports Enthusiasts

Phoenix is among the top cities for sports fans. Six professional teams take on opponents inside four stadiums in Phoenix and Glendale—that’s right, six! Arizona is home to the MLB Arizona Diamondbacks, NBA Phoenix Suns, NFL Arizona Cardinals, NHL Arizona Coyotes, WNBA Phoenix Mercury and AFL Arizona Rattlers.

In addition to the live athletics, memorabilia is in great supply at sports museums and two must-visit sports grills, including one that’s owned by a former NBA star.

Ziegler Fiesta Bowl Museum

More than three decades of jerseys, trophies, game balls and game footage are on display in this unexpected storefront in the Scottsdale Waterfront shopping center. Makes a perfect shopping time out for football minded folk.
