Glendale

Glendale (pron.: /??l?nde?l/) is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, USA, located about 9 miles (14 km)) northwest from Downtown Phoenix. According to 2010 Census Bureau, the population of the city is 226,721.

The NHL's Phoenix Coyotes and NLL's Arizona Sting began playing in Glendale when Jobing.com Arena (formerly the Glendale Arena) opened in December 2003 in Westgate City Center. Also in Glendale is the new University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which opened in August 2006 in Sportsmans Park. In 2008, Super Bowl XLII was played there when the Giants faced the Patriots. Both venues are part of the Glendale Sports and Entertainment District development plan, meant to spur growth in the sparsely inhabited Yucca district. The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball both moved to the city of Phoenix, Arizona in 2009 for spring training and share a facility, known as Camelback Ranch-Glendale, which is in Phoenix but owned and operated by the City of Glendale.

Glendale bills itself as "Arizona's Antique Capital", with support for its claim from both Sunset magazine (2004) and a 1998 article in USA Today. Glendale is home to the popular Arrowhead Towne Center mall in the northwest part of the city. Glendale also is home to Midwestern University, metropolitan Phoenix's first medical school, as well as a major post-graduate international business school: the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

An extension of METRO light rail service is planned to serve the city, opening in 2026 , reprising a role played by the Phoenix Street Railway between 1911 and 1926.
