History: The $280 million facility, originally the Trans World Dome, opened in November 1995 to serve as a convention center and to lure an NFL team back to St. Louis after the football Cardinals left for Arizona in 1988. It's the first stadium to dedicate an entire concourse to its stadium club; indeed, the Club Level has 42,500 square feet of bars, food service and hospitality space. Two huge banners hang from the east and west sides of the stadium, one depicting the Rams' version of "The Catch" – Ricky Proehl's leaping, one-handed, 30-yard, winning TD catch against the Buccaneers in the January 2000 NFC Championship – and "The Tackle" – the greatest in Rams history, in which linebacker Mike Jones tackled the Titans' Kevin Dyson on the 1-yard line on the final play of Super Bowl XXXIV, to preserve the Rams' 23-16 victory. In 2009, the Edward Jones Dome underwent a major refurbishment. To enhance the fan experience, new High Definition video boards have been added to both end zones. These include a 76-foot board on the north side and a 35-foot board in the south end zone, along with new sideline LED boards. Other upgrades include a sports bar overlooking the north end zone that is accessible to all ticket holders, a Premium Club in the south end zone, a renovated Rams Club and new on-field seating.
