Starphire® glass by Vitro Architectural Glass shines at SoFi Stadium

Advanced low-iron glass offers spectacularly clear views at events inside LA's newest stadium

February 13, 2022, more than 70,000 football fans packed inside SoFi Stadium to attend Super Bowl LVI, the first in-person National Football League (NFL) championship game open to the public since 2020. Inside, attendees enjoyed brilliantly clear views of the field from virtually everywhere thanks to doors, railings and partitions inside the stadium made of Starphire Ultra-Clear® low-iron glass by Vitro Architectural Glass.

Whether in its ultra-clear form or decorated with distinctive acid-etched designs, Starphire® glass doors and partitions provide a unique combination of function and visual impact. Starphire® glass handrails also help to create visually connected spaces throughout the stadium by providing a sprawling sense of openness, which was felt intensely as the stadium welcomed its largest crowd since its official opening.

Starphire® glass contains 87 percent less green than conventional clear glass and transmits up to 91 percent of available visible light, delivering uncompromised visual impact and true-to-life views that are much clearer than “clear” glass. Starphire® glass also maintains its signature azure blue edge no matter the thickness and evokes a sense of luxury and sophistication with the premium seating partitions located throughout the stadium.

Designed by international architectural firm HKS, Inc., SoFi Stadium is located in Inglewood, a city in southwestern Los Angeles County, California. In addition to the stadium itself, the project features a pedestrian plaza and the 6,000-seat YouTube Theater performance venue.

Glass fabricator Glasswerks LA Inc. and glazing contractors Giroux Glass and Aragon Construction provided the Starphire® glass used in the stadium’s interior spaces.
