Yeah I've been to that stadium in az. It looks like a big can of tuna. That picture does a wonderful job of making it look cooler than it is.

Yup, that stadium in AZ is NOT that cool at all. Ugly as hell irl, it looks very "cheap" from the highway, and the inside is very warehouse like according to a few AZ fans I knew when I lived there.
For the record - living in Phoenix, and having been to UoP stadium several times, the place is not as nice as you think. First, the design for the outside SUCKS. It's supposed to resemble a coiled snake???? The interior is dark, except in the field area. The upper deck corners suck for watching a game. The only really "cool" thing about this stadium is the roll out field. As far as Jimmy's Palace in Arlington goes - no thanks. Too many issues from the moment it opened. The new 49ers stadium is a model of designed in and purpose built Silicon Valley tech and environmental advances. The game day experience for fans will be better than at any other stadium in America. Want to take your tablet to the game and watch replays? Want to be able to choose a camera angle to watch? Want to have free wifi for whatever reason? All built in to the new stadium. Solar panels? Yeah. it has 'em - even on top of the 3 pedestrian bridges from the Great America lot to the stadium. The design makes it so that the stadium will actually be energy neutral - what is uses on game days, it generates in kind when the stadium is not in use. It should be LEED certified - first stadium in the U.S. to achieve that distinction. 2/3 of the seating is in the lower bowl. Think about the noise that will be generated from the East side of the stadium reverberating off the West side suite wall! The Seachicks ain't got NUTTIN' on us!
