Home of the St. Louis Rams since 1995, the Edward Jones Dome is a massive facility that is home to many events, including football. Prior to moving to St. Louis, the Rams played at Anaheim Stadium, a multipurpose facility, that was also the home of the California Angels (MLB). From 1960 until 1987, St. Louis had a NFL team, the Cardinals who played at Busch Stadium. However, the team was moved to Arizona, and Sun Devil Stadium after the 1987 season. Hoping to land a NFL team through relocation or expansion, the city decided to build a new dome stadium in the early 1990’s. During the same time, the Rams wanted a new football only facility to play at. After attempts to get a new stadium failed in Anaheim, the team decided to move to St. Louis after the 1994 NFL season. However, the new stadium in St. Louis was not yet complete. During the first several weeks of the 1995 season, the Rams played at Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals (MLB).

The St. Louis Rams first game at the Edward Jones Dome was on November 12, 1995. Over 65,000 seats in three tiers circle the entire field. Edward Jones Dome has 6,300 club seats and 125 luxury suites. The exterior of the stadium is made up of brick and glass. Fans enter the stadium through one of the four entry points in each corner of the building, each with its own spacious glass atrium and escalators. A ring of fame is also located inside the stadium containing the retired numbers of Rams Hall of Famers. The stadium has changed names several times, from the TWA Dome to the Dome at America's Center, to its present day name, Edward Jones Dome. Edward Jones purchased the naming rights in January 2002 for $2.65 million a year. Edward Jones Dome is part of the expanded America's Center convention complex. This complex, along with Edward Jones Dome hosts many other events besides football, including concerts and conventions. The stadium can be turned into a convention center very quickly. A "Magic Turf" systems allows the football field to be rolled up in an hour. The lighting gridiron can also be lowered to make the area more unique. After the 2004 season, the Rams plan to install Fieldturf and replace the video/scoreboards with new High Definition ones. The Edward Jones Dome is one of the most unique stadiums in the NFL.
