History of Busch Stadium
Ground was broken on the stadium on January 17, 2004. Busch Stadium was completed roughly two years later on April 4, 2006. Back in 1995 the Cardinals owners started the idea of building a new stadium in downtown St. Louis, but they weren’t able to acquire funding for the new stadium for several years. In 2001, the Missouri State government signed a contract to allow a new stadium, but a funding bill was shut down a year later. The stadium was financed through bank loans, long-term loans from St. Louis County, private bonds, and money from the team owners.
During the debut season for the Cardinals, every single game was sold out. In 2006 the Cardinals beat the Detroit Tigers in 5 games, recieveing their 10th World Series title. In 2009, Busch Stadium only hosted one postseason game, a loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which completed a sweep of the Cardinals. The stadium has hosted several concerts suchas Dave Matthews Band, The Eagles, U2, and The Dixie Chicks.
